HOW TO MAKE HONEY GARLIC CHICKEN IN A RICE COOKER
We’re all about whipping up easy chicken recipes that make dinner uncomplicated and delicious. And you KNOW we are big on showing that rice cooker recipes don’t stop at just preparing perfect rice.
Seriously, whether you go with this fun bang bang chicken, this Indonesian chicken porridge – or this iconic American comfort-food chicken noodle soup – your rice cooker is the perfect kitchen appliance when it comes to making chicken recipes on a busy work or school night.
Well, in the case of this honey garlic chicken recipe, just marinate your sliced chicken breast in soy sauce, honey and rice vinegar for a quick 15 minutes – and then place everything in the tacook cooking plate.
When you use the Synchro-Cooking setting, the vapor created by the cooking rice in the inner pot of your multi-functional rice cooker will steam the honey garlic chicken at the same time. It’s a little bit of food magic – and a whole lot of science… but, as always, we simply like to focus on how delicious it is!
Here’s hoping you and your family love this easy chicken recipe as much as we do!
