Shortcut Butter Chicken Rice, Everything Nice (Recipe)

I would cook Chicken Rice whenever the kids grew tired of eating the usual steamed rice with dishes. As it would take some time to prepare the chicken broth for the rice, normally I don’t use this method to prepare the rice. For the chicken sometimes I would just steam it and if time permits I would prepare roasted one. Here is my recipe for a Shortcut Butter Chicken Rice

Ingredients and Instruction
Chicken Rice
Rice, 2 small cups
Butter, 2 tablespoons
Garlic, 5 cloves
Turmeric, a dash
Pandan leaves (screwpine), 3 pcs
Salt to taste
Chicken Broth (optional), enough to cook rice grains

Put the rice in a rice cooker and add around 1cm of water (or chicken broth) above the rice (the water added depends on the grade and age of the rice you use, so please vary the amount of water). Add in the butter, garlic, turmeric, pandan leaves and salt. Press the cook button.....Butter Chicken rice on the way! Garnish rice with cucumber slice before serving. Chicken ½ Chicken, Steam the chicken in high heat for 20 minutes. Take out and the chicken in cold water for a short while. Then continue steaming the chicken for another 10 minutes.

Chicken Rice Chili
Fresh Chilli, 5 pcs
Garlic, 5 cloves
Ginger, Optional
Salt to taste
Lime juice from 3 limes
Sugar to taste

Put all Chicken rice chilly ingredients in blender and blend until all ingredients turned fine.

Chicken Rice Soya Sauce
Garlic, 3 cloves, minced
Light Soya sauce, 7 table spoons
Sesame oil, 1 table spoon

 Heat up wok and add in the sesame oil. Sauteed garlic until fragrant and add in the soya sauce. Add a little water to vary the saltiness according to your taste.
