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!
