We made this Soy Sauce Chicken Rice with just a rice cooker!

If you’re looking for a recipe that’s low-effort but makes it seem like you’ve been in the kitchen all day, then this is the recipe for you! 

All you need to do is marinate some chicken with a variety of sauces and aromatics, then simply place them over the rice and let your trusty rice cooker do all the cooking for you.

The chicken and rice is cooked at the same time, and the rice soaks up the delicious ginger and garlic flavours from the chicken – making it super yummy and flavourful. 

In just under an hour, you’ll have a week’s worth of meals that just needs to be popped in the microwave!
