This is a main dish traditionally prepared in a clay pot, with bits of charred rice at the bottom - a real treat! Don't worry about the clean-up; if you're using a stainless steel pan, soak it afterward with a baking soda solution.

Directions

  1. Heat the vegetable oil in a large saucepan with a lid over medium heat. Cook and stir the bacon pieces until lightly browned and the oil has a bacon flavor, about 1 minute. Remove the bacon from the pan, turn the heat to high, stir in the garlic, and cook until the garlic cloves are beginning to turn golden brown, about 1 more minute. Add the chicken pieces, stirring to seal the surfaces of the meat. Turn the heat down, and cook until golden brown on the outside but still pink on the inside, about 3 minutes.
  2. Return the bacon pieces to the pan, and stir in the dark soy sauce, oyster sauce, light soy sauce, and rice, and mix everything together until well-combined. Pour in the water (should not reach to the top of the rice mixture), cover the pan, and turn the heat to low. Simmer until the rice is cooked and grains of roasted rice are stuck on the bottom of the pan, about 30 minutes. Serve each portion topped with some of the browned rice kernels scraped from the bottom.

This was a great dish that even my picky little girl liked. A bit salty, I'll sub 1/4 cup chicken broth for some of the soy sauce next time. Also, the 1/2 cup of water called for failed to cook the rice, I added probably another cup to cook it through. Thanks for the delicious, quick recipe!

I haven't made this yet. I was wondering if you knew how to make this in a clay pot. I have one and would like to use it more. Thanks!

Very good followed the recipe to the letter, except for the clay pot, like my favorite hole in the wall in China Town of San Francisco where I was the only anglo and there by special invite. Thank you Miss Yung!
