This is a very interesting recipe that we made at one of our Cookpad class, last year. One of the chefs who normally teaches the class introduced us to it and I loved it! Watch out for the video recipe coming out soon. The best part of this recipe is that it is healthy since it uses no oil, the meal is steamed and so easy to make. I love both rice and chicken, so this fulfils both my love for the 2. It is such a unique way to have your chicken and rice without any hustle!

To be sure the chicken and rice are cooked, check that the rice should have porcupine like spikes ontop
