I'm so happy I found this recipe. I used regular jasmine rice and 2 cups of chicken and added a little more fish sauce. The only thing I would change would be the poultry seasoning (I used McCormick Chicken rub). I forgot to taste before I added and a tablespoon was WAY too much for my liking. I set the water on high til it boiled and then put it on the low/1 setting on my stove. I let it sit for 45 minutes but I would check it the last ten minutes next time.
I am definitely using this recipe again but w/out the poultry seasoing and maybe adding green onions.

I made this again and simplified the process. I reduced the rice to only 2 cups of jasmine rice (next time I will try 1 1/2) and let it simmer for only 20 minutes, not the full 45. I added a little more fish sauce to taste and with the chicken, I added a bunch of green onions and seasoned with white pepper. Great as leftover with a poached or fried egg. Perfect for when you're under the weather. Thanks again!

I love this recipe. I use 1/4 cup sweet brown rice and 2 cups long grain brown rice. It's wonderful to make at the beginning of the week and then I can eat it for lunch all week.

This is pretty good! It really makes rice last a lot longer. I've made this a few times. I still haven't tried adding egg to it, so I might give that a try next time. Thanks!

Very good. We added a little more fish sauce and no sugar. Also garnished with coriander before serving.

Delicious! No chicken meat, but I topped with fried shallot, pork floss and chopped green onion, and poured a little fish sauce over the top. Mmmmm yum!
