Black Pepper Chicken Rice

This is one dish I “discovered” recently purely through experimentation. Chicken rice is my kids’ all-time favourite. I’ve decided to give it a bit of variation black pepper chicken. Have you ever thought of roasting chicken in a microwave oven? It can be done.

The first step is of course to marinate the chicken. I’ve done this with a mixture of black pepper, coarse salt and sesame seeds. In the meantime, I cook my rice in the usual way.

Ginger and garlic oil, sesame seed oil, seasoning and pandan leaves. Just let it cook until it’s nice and fluffy.

30 mins in the microwave oven and our chicken is nicely roasted. Absolutely delicious. The kids loved it.
