Jujube and Chicken Fillet Rice

A SIMPLE CHICKEN RECIPE WITH AN EXOTIC INGREDIENTS LIST

We’d say it’s pretty cool when an easy chicken and rice recipe can introduce some new ingredients to the dinner table. Because, as they say, variety is the spice of life. 

And jujube and wood ear mushrooms elevate this delicious dish from an everyday chicken dinner idea to a dining event.

There’s all the heartiness you expect when digging into a plate of chicken and rice – but there are little pops of unexpected flavor and texture. And we think you’re going to love it!

 

WHAT IS JUJUBE?

Jujube is a Chinese red date that has the slightest sweet-sour flavor profile. Along with the goji berries used in this chicken and rice recipe, this stone fruit is the perfect addition of subtle sweetness in an otherwise savory dinner recipe.

 

WHAT ARE WOOD EAR MUSHROOMS?

Wood ear mushrooms are technically a black fungus. And unlike most traditional mushrooms, wood ear mushrooms don’t have a spongy texture – and don’t absorb a ton of water. Sold dry in most Asian grocery stores, these mushrooms are soaked prior to cooking – and take on a somewhat crunchy yet pliant consistency once rehydrated. 

They’re the perfect flavor and texture addition to this easy chicken recipe!

 

HOW TO MAKE CHICKEN AND RICE IN A RICE COOKER

Much like the preparation of this yummy Japanese oyakodon, you can totally prepare both the chicken and rice at the same time in your Tiger rice cooker.

And that’s because of the tacook cooking plate that uses the vapor created by the cooking rice to steam your chicken and mushrooms.

Simply select the Synchro-Cooking setting – and you’ll truly be cooking with the press of a button. 

Enjoy! 🍲😋
