1 cup  Rice (wash and pre-soak for 30 minutes)
1 ½ cup  Water
450g  Chicken Thigh (cut into 4-5 pcs)
1 tbsp  Cornstarch
1 tsp  Ginger (minced)
3 tsp  Sesame Oil
1 tsp  Sugar
2 tsp  Soy Sauce
½ tsp  Salt
2 tbsp  Vegetable Oil
3 cloves  Garlic (minced)
2 inch  Ginger (sliced)
2 tsp  Oyster Sauce
30g  Shiitake Mushrooms (rehydrated for 20 minutes if they’re dried)
2  Bok Choy (roughly chopped)
1 tbsp  Dark Soy Sauce
1 tsp  Sesame Oil


  1. Marinate the chicken with cornstarch, ginger, sesame oil, sugar, soy sauce and salt for 30 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, drain the pre-soaked rice and put it into the clay pot. Add 1 ½ cups of water & cook over medium heat and stir regularly. Continue to cook, until the water is almost absorbed by the rice, about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Cover and simmer over low heat for 10 minutes.
  3. Heat the vegetable oil in a wok, then add the garlic and ginger, then fry until fragrant. Add the marinated chicken and oyster sauce and stir. When the meat starts to brown, add the mushrooms, stirring for a minute to mix well.
  4. When the rice is ready, arrange chicken and mushrooms on top of the rice. Cover and continue to simmer for about 20 minutes.
  5. Finally, add the Bok Choy, cover and keep the heat on low for another 10 minutes.
  6. Drizzle the dark soy sauce and sesame oil over the vegetables and serve in the claypot.
  7. *NB. Use a dutch oven or heavy bottomed pot if you don’t have a claypot. The results will be almost the same, but keep an eye on the fire/heat to avoid burning the rice.
