Claypot Chicken Rice..make your own
By Victoria Lim | Friday, Feb 19, 2016
A traditional dish in Guangdong province, the claypot rice is typically cooked over a charcoal stove, which adds a distinctive smokey and charred flavour to it. Alas our everyday kitchen is not built for such wood fire cooking method, so we’ll have to make do with what we have. Of course, it’s best if you can do this over charcoal heat. And because it is our own recipe, we were a tad too generous with the ingredients. You’ve been warned. 
Watch the video below on how we cook this simple yet flavourful dish.

1kg or chopped our cut chicken chunks
