This was a nice recipe. I was looking for something simple to do with turkey leftovers, and decided on this. We found the seasoning to be very light -- even though the onion, garlic and ginger smelled amazing when it was frying in sesame oil, once the rice was cooked in it, the flavor ended up being a bit bland. I ended up adding a bit of extra sesame oil when I mixed it all up at the end, but my husband and oldest son added some peanut sauce on top of that because they still found it too bland. I think this would be nice with some veggies mixed in as well. Maybe some frozen peas or something. I should add that I made it on the stove top instead of a rice cooker, because ours is broken, and that worked just fine.
Brilliant recipe! The whole family (all 3 of us) really enjoyed it, and it was so easy to do! I used leftover rotisserie chicken, and a whole litre of stock (4 cups instead of 3), doongara rice (long grain, diabetes-friendly) and a little powdered ginger because none of us like a lot of ginger. It turned out great and even my son, who initially didn't like the look of it, really enjoyed it.
This was very good, but bland. I gave it 5 stars because it is a good way to use up left over chicken, and it can be jazzed up if anyone wants to. We served it with soy sauce and pepper. I think some frozen vegetables or chopped peppers would be a nice addition. Thanks for posting.
