AMC Claypot Chicken Rice


Just 1 month before my EDD, I went to Auntie A's house to see a cooking demo by her AMC agent, LY. Prior to this, I already own 2 smaller pots, courtesy of sister E, but these pots are never fully utilised. In fact, the cooking demo was kind of unnecessary as I've already made up my mind to buy the pots. Nevertheless, I still went ahead partially because I wanted a break from my usual routine and a chance for the kids to mingle with JJ, Ra and Lia.


The pots were delivered to me just 1 week before I delivered DD3 in Feb 08. For obvious reason, I didn't cook during confinement period. I only started cooking 3 months after and LY had been calling me perpetually 2 - 3 times a week to ask if I needed a cooking demo. I told her I'm fine since I have the AMC cook book that came along with the pots.

This dish was shared by SL when she cooked it for our lunch after the kids' inline skating course in Pasir Ris Park . I didn't know it can be so simple and delicious.

I still remember I cooked this once for sister C and kids when they came by during one of the school holidays and my nephew N likes this. Ever since, I've been cooking this whenever they visit :P

N: If you're reading this, I hope you've enjoyed your dinner last Thursday :)


Edit to include recipe (estimation)


This recipe is good for my family of 2A + 2C (not taking into consideration of what DD3 can eat since she's eating so little)

Ingredients

(A)
5 - 6 bulbs shallots, finely chopped
2 Tbsp ginger, chopped

(B)
500g mid joint chicken wings
1 Tbsp soy sauce
1 Tbsp oyster sauce
1/4 tsp sesame oil
some pepper
NB: marinate together for at least 4 hours, best if you marinate it overnight. This is lightly flavoured which is just right for my family so if you prefer a more flavoured dish, increase your marinate accordingly

(C)
200g fresh button mushroom, sliced
1 chinese sausage, sliced

(D)
1.5 cup rice (this is based on the standard rice cup from the rice cooker)
1 cup water (I add less water because the fresh mushroom and chicken will exude water while cooking)

AMC Method
  1. Heat up pot till needle reaches Red, stir fry shallot and ginger with some oil.
  2. Add mushroom to stir fry till fragrant. Add in rice and fry till well mixed. Add water.
  3. Cook rice till 11 o'clock, add chicken on top and cook till 2 o'clock. Reduce medium heat to small fire and simmer for another 5 - 7 mins.
  4. Food is ready to be served when needle retracts to 12 o'clock.

Rice Cooker Method

  1. If you are using rice cooker, you can either stir fry the ingredients first and transfer to your rice cooker to cook or the lazy way is to just dump everything into the rice cooker and add in the amount of water required.
  2. Stir the ingredients to mix well.
  3. Cook as per how you'll cook your plain white rice, with a stir in between the cooking cycle (that's what my Mom does). When the cooking cycle is completed, let stand for 10 - 15 mins.
  4. Fluff up the rice and the dish is ready to be served.

Dear Blessed Homemaker

Your claypot rice looks very delicious and interesting. I always wanted to cook claypot rice but don't know how. AMC pots seem to be able to cook very delicious claypot rice. But don't where to buy. I really appreciate it if you could let me have the contacts of the agents. Million thanks in advance.

Hi Blessed Homemaker

Do you have a butter cake recipe in your AMC recipe book? If yes can email to me at jandewng@yahoo.com.sg? I have been looking for this recipe for ages. My mum owes AMC pot and recipe book but coz when we moved house 10 yrs old I no longer have the book anymore. It used to be my fave butter cake recipe.
