1 tsp Soy sauce
½ tsp Sugar
1 tbsp Oyster Sauce

Sesame oil
¼ tsp White pepper
1 tsp Corn Starch

1 Chinese Sausage, sliced


1 part Soy Sauce
1 part Dark soy sauce
4 part Water or Chicken stock


In a bowl, soak your mushrooms in water overnight

Set two of the nicer looking mushrooms aside and cut the remaining two.

put chicken and mushrooms in a bowl. Marinate with salt, soy sauce, sugar, oyster sauce, ginger, scallion, and wine. Using your hands, work the chicken until all the marinate has been absorbed or coat the chicken. Add in the sesame oil, then cornstarch, mix again. Finally, pour oil over top and set aside to marinade.

Wash your rice and leave it in a strainer.

Set your clay pot on the stove over medium high heat. Add in the water and bring it to a boil. Once the water is boiling add in the rice and stir continuously until the water comes back to a boil. Turn the heat down to low, and put the lid on top. Allowing it to cook for about 5 mins.

Once the 5 minutes have elapsed, there should still be some water in the bowl, add in your chicken, chinese sausage, and put the 2 unsliced mushrooms on top.

Close the lid and continue cooking on low for 10-15 mins. Move the pot around every 2-3 mins to allow for an even cook.

You should be able to hear the rice go from boiling to frying. Once it does this add in 2 tablespoons of oil over top of the lid. Continue cooking it slowly until a nice crust is formed all around. Be patient as low and slow makes the best crust.

Once the crust has formed, turn off the heat and set the clay pot rice aside for 5 mins with the lid on.
