Jacky loves to eat Chinese clay pot rice. The kind that’s cooked under an open fire with the flame so big that it wraps around the whole pot. Best if it’s cooked with a coal stove. We missed it so much that it was the first thing we ate in our last trip to Hong Kong. Ha! It’s the ultimate one pot meal that’s so comforting to eat.
When we don’t have the time or patience to make clay pot rice (when our tummies are protesting that is), we would make these EASY one pot meals in pressure cookers. Yes, this steamed rice won’t be the same without the scorched rice, but if you want a quick and easy meal that you can throw together in the last minute, this is it! 😀
There are so many variations of one pot rice we want to try!! The first one pot rice we’ve experimented is a Cantonese classic – Shiitake Mushroom Chicken and Rice 北菇滑雞蒸飯. A bite of juicy mushroom with tender and moist chicken, paired with perfectly cooked fragrant rice full of chicken flavors. It’s so deliciously easy to eat.

One Pot Chinese Pressure Cooker Chicken and Rice Recipe Tips
Please carefully measure the amount of water you use!! This is very critical. Don’t wing it. If you have too much water, the rice will end up mushy; if you have too little water, it’ll end up dry and hard, or even burnt!
