Hainanese Chicken Rice

Made this for dinner, I used chicken thigh instead of whole chicken as I am only cooking for 2 of us...
What You Need:
Jasmine rice (For 2)
About 6 cloves garlic
2 thumb sized ginger
1 pandan leaves, tied into knots
About 4 chicken thighs

Blend this (to Paste)
4 cloves of garlic
1 thumb sized ginger
1 tbsp sesame oil
1 tsp salt

What To Do:
  1. Boil chicken thigh in a pot of boiling water until it is cooked thoroughly, about 45 mins
  2. In a saucepan, add 1 tbsp of oil & 1 tsp sesame oil. Fry the garlic and ginger till slightly brown, add in paste and stir well
  3. Add rice and fry till slightly transluscent. Transfer mixture to rice cooker
  4. Add in stock from step 1 to rice cooker till the desired water level (In my case to Mark 2.5 for 2.5 cup of rice). Add in pandan leaves and hit COOK button
  5. Serve with chicken thigh and of course, chicken rice chilli!!!!
  1. NOTE: To make the sauce to drizzle over the meat and rice, add 2 tbsp of light soy sauce, 1 tbsp sesame oil & 4 tbsp of chicken stock in a bowl mix well and drizzle!
  2. NOTE: Do not waste the stock, add cabbage and carrots to make soup!
