Rice Cooker Soy Sauce Chicken Leg 电饭锅酱油鸡腿

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! ;)

酱油鸡也称为豉油鸡,是一道广东菜。一般的做法是把整只鸡浸熟,就是用一锅以酱油为主,再加一些姜,葱,八角,酒,冰糖之类的材料调配而成的。我讲的 ‘一般做法’,不是我的做法,因为太麻烦啦!家里有电饭锅,就好好把它利用。用电饭锅来煮这道菜,就是把所有材料放进电饭锅里,按键 ‘煮’。实在容易,成品也是色香味俱全。

Ingredients: Yield 2-3 servings 

3 Chicken Legs 全鸡腿 3只/ 2只鸡腿 + 2只鸡翅膀,大约500克
(or 2 chicken legs + 2 chicken wings, about 500g)

2 Cooked Eggs (optional, peeled) 熟鸡蛋 2粒,去壳

6 cloves of Garlic (pounded) 蒜头 6棵,拍烂

8 slices Ginger (12g) 姜 8片,大约12克

1 stalk Spring Onion (15g) 葱 1棵,大约15克

450g Water 水 450克

30g Shao Xing Hua Diao Cooking Wine 绍兴花雕酒 30克

3 tbsp Dark Soy Sauce 黑酱油 3汤匙

65g Light Soy Sauce 酱油 65克

27g Rock Sugar 冰糖 27克

1/8 tsp Five Spice 五香粉 1/8茶匙

1 Cinnamon Stick 肉桂皮 1支

1 Star Anise (small, optional) 八角 1小粒 (随意,喜欢清淡的味道可以不放)

3 Cloves 丁香 3粒

Method: 步骤

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.
