How to cook
Marinade the chicken
  • Combine hoisin sauce, dark soy sauce, honey, Shao Xing wine, five spice powder, ginger, garlic, salt and pepper for the chicken marinate in a zip lock bag.
  • Place the chicken inside the bag and thoroughly coat it.
  • Marinate for at least 30 minutes or overnight.
Prepare the chicken baste
  • Combine the hoisin sauce, five spice powder, honey and cooking oil then set it aside.
Prepare the rice
  • In a pan with 2 tablespoon of oil over medium heat, fry the lup cheong until lightly brown on both sides (about 1 minute).
  • Add in the ginger and garlic, then fry for 30 seconds until fragrant.
  • Deglaze the pan with Shao Xing wine and add in the remaining rice seasonings - kicap manis, dark soy sauce, chicken stock powder, salt and pepper.
  • Add in the rice, mushroom and dried prawn - keep stirring for 45 seconds to ensure each grain is coated and does not sticking to the bottom.
  • Transfer the rice mixture to your rice cooker, add water and cook as per rice cooker instructions.
  • Once the rice is cooked, fluff up the cooked rice and gently mix in the fried shallots and sesame oil.
  • Remove 2 cups of rice and place it on a plate to cool.
Start cooking
  • Place the marinated chicken onto a tray with a wire rack and roast in the oven for 30 minutes.
  • After 30 minutes, remove chicken from the oven and stuff the cavity with the cooled rice.
  • Using a brush, brush the chicken baste evenly on the chicken then roast the stuffed chicken for another 15 to 20 minutes (until the thickest part of the chicken breast registers 70°C).
  • Remove from the oven and let it rest for 5 minutes.
  • Serve the chicken with a side of the extra rice and garnish with chilli, coriander and more fried shallots (optional).
