How to make water chestnut stewed chicken in rice cooker?
Ingredients: half a local chicken
Accessories: 20 water chestnuts, salt, goji, ginger
Clean up the chicken, wash and cut into pieces, wash and slice the ginger, and wash and soak the wolfberry with cold water.
Bring the chicken pieces to a boil in a pot under cold water. It is best not to cook for too long. Just let it open slightly. When the blood foam comes out, just pick it up. It is best to use a pot under cold water, so that the chicken is tender and delicious.
Add the blanched chicken nuggets into the rice cooker and add ginger slices (you can use an electric cooker or a clay pot to stew).
Add clean water. It is best to cover the ingredients by 2 cm. If you don’t like to drink soup, you can add less, because the rice cooker stews the soup and does not lose much water.
Power on with the lid, and you can choose the soup function. (Generally, local chicken is not easy to stew, so you can set the time yourself. It can be stewed in about 2 hours.) The rice cooker starts to work, and wait until it is boiled. After the heat and fragrance come out, it can be turned on in 50 minutes.
Wash the water chestnuts and peel them so that they are whole. Don’t cut them.
Put the peeled water chestnuts down in the rice cooker and continue to simmer. Add the lid to the pot and slowly cook the soup.
There are 20 minutes left to cook the soup. (you can see the time display on the rice cooker)
Add salt and cover the lid again. After the time is up, the soup boiling function is over. Cook until it reaches the holding position, add wolfberry and stir evenly to continue boiling the soup.
Put the lid on, unplug the power, and simmer for two minutes. It can be served.
The chicken is hard to cook, so you can set the time for 2 hours and it can be cooked. You can add any vegetables, yam, potatoes, etc. You can add water chestnuts earlier. Hope you like the water chestnut stewed chicken in rice cooker.
