Rice Cooker Soy Sauce Chicken Leg ???????

Soy Sauce Chicken is a Cantonese favourite cuisine. Most people cook this dish using whole chicken, braise in a pot of soy sauce flavoured watery gravy. It is quite tedious to braise a whole chicken as you need to stand by the stove, rotate the chicken to get an even colour and flavour. Fred not! The recipe that I am sharing here is my simplified method. Use chicken leg, cook in a rice cooker, the simplest method.

The reason why I cooked soy sauce chicken leg instead of whole chicken is simple 'because I do not like to eat chicken breast meat.' 

The rice cooker method is rather simple and straight forward. Just 2 steps:

1. Get the ingredients ready and put in a rice cooker.

2. Close the lid, set to cook.

Of course, you can do as I did, flip the chicken at the end of the cooking to get a nicer colour and flavour. The last step is optional, do it if you want your dish to look gorgeous! ;)

Method: ??

1. Put all ingredients in the inner pot of the rice cooker. Close the lid, turn on DIY mode, set 45 minutes cooking time and press start. If you are using a regular rice cooker without DIY setting, just press start to cook, check the progress in the middle of cooking and adjust the time and water accordingly. 

2. When the cooking is done, open the lid, flip the chicken and eggs. Close the lid, set the time to 10 minutes (DIY mode), press start and let it cook. When it's ready, serve warm with rice, noodles or porridge.
