One pot Chicken & Rice

Prep Time 5 minutes

Cook time 50 minutes

Total time 1 hour

One pot chicken and rice is loved by many because it is packed with flavour and it is a stressfree cooking dish. It resembles the taste of fried rice, but much more fuller. This particular recipe is savoury and sweet.(oyster sauce ). I guarantee you will love it and it will become your go to when you want rice and chicken.



Onion powder

Garlic powder

Chilli Powder

Fried Parsley.

oyster sauce.

Olive oil.

Salt to taste

Chili powder

Complete seasoning( you can substitute this for any stock cube of choice )

8 Chicken Drumsticks

Adjust amount of seasonings !!

I encourage you to cook from your heart but to be patient as well that’s how the best recipes are created


The way this is gonna go is to season your chicken, sear your chicken remove it, create your chicken broth and cook your rice and chicken together.

  1. Generously season your chicken with 2 tablespoons of each of the dry ingredients listed above and oil.

  2. Set that aside to marinate for an hour or more

  3. Heat your pot up on a very high setting with cooking oil of choice

  4. Drop drumsticks in one at a time, insuring not too overcrowd the oil. Overcrowding will lead the chicken to steaming which we’re not looking for today

  5. Do not throw away the rest of the marinade. It will be used later on.

  6. After searching/charring the chicken on both sides for about 4 minutes each, remove and set aside

  7. Deglaze the pot with water

  8. Add 2 cups of water to your marinade, mix together and boil in pot to thicken ( concentrate) for about five minutes

  9. Add in cleaned rice ( jasmine rice is my favourite )

  10. Add water and bring that to a boil, still on high heat

  11. Adjust salt to taste and add more stock seasoning if needed

  12. Add back in chicken and turn the heat down to a medium high and let that rice steam undisturbed for 15 minutes

  13. Check on the rice after 15 minutes and start the bottom to the top of the top to the bottom

  14. Leave the theme for another 10 minutes

  15. After 10 minutes, stir the rice again, do you continuously until the chicken and rice is fully cooked through

  16. Plate your rice and garnish with some fresh parsley


You want to sear your chicken on high heat to get a beautiful colour and also to shorten the cooking process by starting to cook the chicken

Make sure the chicken is cooked through before you serve the rice which means longer cook time for the rise to steam and higher heat medium-high

Thank you very much for reading this blog post. I hope you enjoy this recipe and I’ll see you in the next one. Love.
