Recipe: Chicken Claypot Rice

I have been using HappyCall pot to cook this Chicken Claypot Rice recipe for 2-3 years now. It’s a simple dish to cook, but there’s a bit of preparation work required.

Prep and Cook Time (Serves 2)

Thaw: 2-3 hours to thaw frozen chicken. For best practice, thaw meat in the fridge from morning.

Prep: 1-2 hours to prepare the marinade and ingredients.

Cook: 20 minutes to cook the dish.

Prepare Marinade

  • 2 tbsp light soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp dark soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp Chinese cooking wine
  • 2 tbsp oyster sauce
  • 1 tsp of ginger juice (grate a knob of ginger and squeeze)
  • 1 tbsp sesame oil
  • ½ tsp pepper
  • ½ tsp sugar
  • ½ tbsp corn flour

Prepare Ingredients

  • 1.75 cups rice, washed and drained
  • Xiao Bai Cai, wash and cut the ends
  • Cut salted fish into small pieces
  • Slice chinese sausage (腊肠, “la chang”, “lap cheong”).
  • Cut mushroom into thick slices. If Chinese mushroom, soak before cutting.
  • Cut 1 chicken thigh into bite-sized pieces for this dish,
  • Marinate two* pieces of chicken & mushroom for at least 1 hour. Leave it in the fridge.

*For the other thigh, also prepare marinade for it and leave it to bake in oven.


  • Fry the salted fish with a little oil in the pot.
  • Once the fish turned brown, pour the washed rice into the pot with slightly less than 1.75 cups water, sprinkle chicken stock into the water.
  • Close the lid and bring to boil over medium heat. Once it boils, lower the fire and cook till the stock is absorbed into the rice but still wet.
  • Spread the marinated chicken, mushrooms, sliced sausage and salted fish (optional) over the rice.
  • Pour in the remaining marinade all over the ingredients and towards the side of the pot.
  • Close the lid and cook with low heat, until rice and chicken are cooked, which will take about 15 minutes. (Optional: Add in the Xiao Bai Cai after the 15 minutes.)
  • Flake the rice, cover lid and cook for another 5 minutes and you’re done! (Optional: Sprinkle chopped spring onions, add some garlic oil.)
  • Mix the pot and eat!
