Rice Cooker How To Cook Chicken
Author: Efrain Silva
Let’s talk! Have you ever been to one of those blood drives, or maybe even your local doctor for a quick visit, to hear that it’s that special time again? What special time? Oh, you know….time to get a shot or have a needle puncture your arm for a few painful seconds. I know. I know. It is never a pleasant dose of fun, in fact, all the opposite for most of us….we hate it and especially hate looking at the needle.
Or how about attending one of those multi - day drives for a cause, or heck, even volunteering on part of a study to help further efforts? These are likely the questions you ask when put in such a situation and when even thinking about possibly being a donor, he he he heh.
But WHY IN GOD’S GOOD, GREEN EARTH do I bother starting off this blog on a note like this, you might ask, since it has nothing to do with what we are going to be talking about? Well, I am so glad you were paying attention and read those first two paragraphs, and are now asking this fair question…..
IT HAS TO DO WITH DRAINING THE BLOOD ( WHICH YOU OUGHT TO DO IN YOUR CHICKEN BEFORE PUTTING IT TO COOK IN THE RICE COOKER ) .
I once participated in a blood donation drive and asked these people how much blood they would take. Here was their reply : “As much as you’d take out of a chicken before cooking it.”
Now, an electric rice cooker might be best for cooking raw and drained chicken in, and set it to the longest setting you can ( which is usually the brown rice setting of around 50 minutes or longer ) to really let it steam up. And it will! And when it comes out, it’s quite delicious. Pinch it to see if you might need to let it go back in the rice cooker for another full setting, until you’ve got it just the way you like it.
And you can feel free to throw in thighs, wings, breasts or even the whole chicken itself, if it fits in the pot. Do not cram or stuff. Mix in some water up to cover the chicken before pressing down on that “cook” button on your cooker.
It’s easier to toss in the chicken in bits. Cut it up nicely first. Then throw some bits into the cooker.
So anyways, when it is all said and done, I hope that reading my blog has been a whole heck of a ton less painful than getting punctured with a needle and losing some blood ( or draining your uncooked chicken of its blood, he heh ) . Yes, I like to think spending time with me is a lot more fun than being at the doctor’s ( unless you really, really, really like your doctor, and who could blame you for that? ) . Anyways, thanks for reading!
