Easy One-Pan Chicken Rice Meal ??????

This easy one-pan chicken rice meal is sure to become a family favourite. Well, at least the home cook would love this. Less washing, easy preparation and flavourful. And, best of all, it's a great idea for last minute meal. 

I used to cook sushi rice in a saucepan, pre-soak the rice and it only takes 10 minutes cooking time. I modified the method, added the ingredients that I adapted from here and here goes my quick, easy and delicious chicken rice recipe. Hope you'll like it too. :) 

Chicken Rice cooked in a rice cooker using this recipe.
Used Jasmine rice instead of Japanese rice, water amount adjusted.
Turned out so fragrant and with some claypot-chicken-rice-style crisp. Superb.
