Savory Glutinous Rice & Roasted Chicken

Everybody is having turkey for X'mas but I'm having roasted chicken. haha..... Not funny at all ! Oh well, still a bird. Right! What about a roasted chicken with glutinous rice? I love glutinous rice in any form and my kids are getting to love it too. But so far, have yet tried stuffing it to the chicken and not sure if the rice will cooked properly in this way. This is a real filling and easy to prepare meal. As always, we will never get enough of the rice. I'll prepare extra glutinous rice in another tray by steaming it, so that we have enough rice to feed everyone else.

Ingredients :
1 whole chicken about 1-1/2 kg)
1-1/2 cup glutinous rice, soaked for 3 hours
30gm dried shrimp, soaked
1 stick Chinese sausage, sliced
handful of mushroom, sliced
some cilantro, chopped

* prepare one big sheet of greaseproof paper.

Seasoning for glutinous rice :
1/2 cup water
2 tbsp vegetarian oyster sauce
1 tbsp light soy sauce
1 tspn dark soy sauce
1/4 tspn white pepper
2 tbsp fried garlic oil
1/2 tbsp sesame oil
(combine all ingredients and mix well)

Seasoning for Chicken :
salt & pepper
1 tspn Chinese five spice
1 tbsp sugar
1 tbsp light soy sauce
1/2 tspn dark soy sauce
1 tpsn blended garlic
1 tspn ginger juice
1 tpsn Chinese rice wine/shaoxing wine
1 tbsp sesame oil
(combine all ingredients and mix well, then rub mixture to the chicken and set aside for an hour)

Method :
(1) steam the drained plain glutinous rice for about 30 mins.
(2) then pan fried dried shrimp with fried garlic oil.
(you need extra garlic oil)
(3) soon after the shrimp turned fragrant, off the heat and stir in the seasoning and mix well.
(4) add in sausage & fried dried shrimp included garlic oil to the rice.
(5) stuff the rice into the chicken and keep the chicken sealed.
(6) wrap chicken with a piece of greaseproof paper and sealed.
(7) finally, bake at 200'c for about an hour and 20 mins at 185'c.
(add in extra dark soy sauce if you prefer the skin looks darker)
Dried shrimp is something that is so popular over in Asia and we're loving it. We used it in many dishes especially in making 'sambal'. Other than that we love using it in stir fried vegetables too. While I love using it in fried rice which hubby loves the most. Non of my family like Chinese sausage except me but I still need them in this recipe to flavour up the rice. Of course, I'm the one ended up eating all the sausage. lol! ^_^ The rice turned out just nice and perfect. And is totally well cooked.
Wishing all a Merry Christmas & a Happy New Year!

    Nice idea on the glutinous rice. :)

  11. this will be a perfect lunch for me though it may be a little heavy..thanks so much for sharing!

  12. Looks yummy and delicious.. amazing recipe !!

  13. I rather have chicken than turkey for Thanksgiving but you know the tradition. Have to eat turkey. It is just too much for us to have the whole turkey. I like this stuffing a lot. Kind of reminds me of a duck dish I had many years ago.

  14. My husband hates turkey. He says it looks like a big mutant bird (I like it though) so we never eat it.
    *kisses* HH

  15. Love all of the spices you used in your chicken. I could eat roasted chicken every day of the week and never tire of it.

  16. Gorgeous and mouth watering! Merry Christmas to you and your family!

  17. hungry ...hungry.... long time never eat 'lo mai kai' already!

  18. Wow - I just may roast my turkey like you roasted your chicken. The rice looks divine. Merry Christmas!

  19. Wow, the chicken sounds fabulous and so decadent with the glutinous rice. Hope you have a Merry Christmas!

  20. If I have to choose, I'd have your dish instead :)

    Have a wonderful Christmas to you and yours.

  21. No turkey for me - I am going for fish again this year. Diane

  22. Penny : Turkey on the 1st & lamb for the following day! You're making me hungry. lol!

    Lena : I prefer to have this for lunch too and take sandwiches for dinner! I'm against the tradition, for having heavy dinner!

    divya : Thanks alot!

    Gert : Ya, I remember those stuffed duck with rice & lots of soft steamed walnuts. So delicious!

    HH : Haha... How to finish it if there's only 2 of you!

    Sam : Thank you and glad you like it too! Enjoy.

    Claudia : Same to you! ((hugs))

    Chris : No worries, you can easily get those in M'sia.

    Claudia : Let me know if you've tried it with turkey! I wanted to find out how's it turns out!

    Diana : Same to you! Oh yes I love the rice more than the chicken.

    Elra : But yet still had to have turkey, right! :o)

  25. We don't have turkey for Christmas either (I go to my sister's on St Stephen's day and gorge on her left-overs!!)

    This dish looks delicious.

  26. Kristy, I would love the rice dish, our favorite side dish! You are too sweet to come and visit me this morning. I am busy, busy with shopping and cooking. Our whole family will join us over the next few days and will be here a week so I must get some of my cooking done early. Hope the holidays are fun for you and your family, sending Season's Greetings!

  27. Kristy funny this is the first year that I am having a turkey for Christmas. I often make standing rib roast or grilled salmon. We usually spend it with our South African friends (who also doesn't have family down for the holidays) but they are in South Africa right now and we are watching their dogs. My husband's dad and step mom with be here and my aunt and uncle and cousins from Montana. So I will be making Christmas dinner for 10 of us for the first time in a long time!

    I love your chicken recipe and am thrilled to find a new way to use my glutenous rice! I know my daughter will love it!

    Have the best holiday, and take care. I will talk to you soon!

  28. How beautiful! Your bird and the rice looks perfect.
    I cant wait to make this and taste the rice with the wonderful sweetness from the chicken and the fun texture!
    Thank you for sharing this and have a wonderful holidays.

  29. I like glutinous rice and stuffing it into the chicken must make it really tasty. Good idea to steam a little more rice separately as the amount stuffed in the chicken is definitely too little.

  30. This is definitely one of my fave recipes. I also like cooking with glutinous rice & adding Chinese sausage. Yummy!

  31. Glutinous rice is one of my favourite, but alas too much of it is not good for my digestive system. Yours look so inviting!

  32. What a delicious feast Kristy! I would love to try your glutinous rice! Merry Christmas! xoxo
