I still have lots of photos to share from the Charleston Wine +Food Festival, but first — we need to talk about rice cooker claypot chicken rice. A couple of weeks ago, my friend Melanie clued me in on this extremely easy and super addictive recipe from Lucky Peach’s 101 Easy Asian Recipes. I’m addicted to Asian claypot dishes. My favorite version is Vietnamese kha ko to (claypot fish), which is chunks of flaky white fish cooked in a sweet, sticky savory caramelized sauce. Similarly, I love claypot chicken. It’s not something that I ever thought I could make at home, though, mainly because I don’t have a tiny claypot or a roaring hot wok fire in my kitchen. Oh, but would if I could. Would if I could.
I love Asian claypot dishes so much that when Melanie sent me this recipe for a rice cooker claypot chicken rice, I raced downstairs during my lunch break to pull all the ingredients out of my kitchen and try it (it helps that I keep dried shiitake mushrooms and miso paste on hand at all times).
