Indonesian Style Steamed Chicken Rice (Nasi Tim Ayam)

Craving for chicken rice? Try this simplified version! The rice and chicken are lightly sautéed with butter and sesame together with some simple seasoning. Instead of using pre-packed stock, I simmered a pot of simple chicken stock for cooking the rice. Yes everything is simplified but it did not compromise the taste :D Result is a light and flavourful chicken rice but less oilier than the traditional Hainanese Chicken Rice :D

  • 3 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
