Claypot Chicken Rice

Claypot rice is a favourite Zichar dish in Singapore. It is usually topped with chicken, waxed meat and mushrooms. Nowadays people tends to cook it in rice cooker at home instead of using the traditional claypot for the convenience. But claypot tends to give a better taste and flavour for the food as the porosity and natural insulation properties of clay causes heat and moisture to circulate throughout clay pots that allows the food to be cooked more evenly with the aroma being kept within the claypot. There is no limit to what kind of ingredients that you can put inside. We even seen Foie Gras claypot rice with Wagyu beef! So just be adventurous and go with your palate!
