I love a dish with "Rice Pot" in the title. As described by Food and Drink, "A superb one-pot chicken dish. Although you can use boneless chicken breast, they are dryer than thighs."

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Slice chicken thighs in half, or quarters if large. Place in bowl, combine shallots, ginger and garlic. Toss chicken with half of shallot mixture and all of soy sauce. Marinate for 30 minutes.
  2. Heat 2 tbsp oil in a skillet over a medium-high heat. Remove chicken from marinade, season with salt and pepper and add to oil. Fry 1 to 2 minutes on each side, or until golden-brown but not cooked through. Remove from pan, add mushrooms and sauté 1 minute or until softened. Season mushrooms and set aside.
  3. Heat remaining 1 tbsp oil in a large, heavy pot over medium heat. Add remaining shallot mixture and sauté 30 seconds. Stir in rice, chicken broth (or water) and chili sauce. Bring to boil. Reduce heat to low and place chicken pieces and mushrooms over rice. Cover and simmer for 10 minutes.
  4. Scatter in peas and green onions and cook, covered, until both rice and chicken are cooked, about 7 to 10 minutes. Stir vegetables and chicken into rice, garnish with coriander. Serve with Spicy Citrus Sauce (recipe follows).
  5. To Make Spicy Citrus Sauce: Combine ginger, chili sauce, fish sauce, water, lemon and lime juice, brown sugar and fresh mint in a bowl. Let sit for one hour before serving.
