Sounds very good. If you have a steamer basket for your rice, perfect, use that, or use any steaming method you prefer. On my to cook list for sure.

Ingredients
For Marinating
For the Dipping Sauce
Servings: servings
Instructions
  1. For the chicken you can use half a chicken or chickens parts to your liking, I will use legs and thighs when I make this. You would want about 500-750 grams of chicken.
  2. Clean the chicken and then spread the marinating sauce evenly on both sides. Lay ginger shreds and green onion shreds over to marinate at least 30 minutes.
  3. Then place in your steamer. I am going to use my rice cooker steamer tray. If you are using a steamer with wok or pot, steam with high heat for around 20 to 30 minutes until soft (or you can easily insert a chop sticker in). Transfer out and cut into chunks of your favorite size. Sprinkle with spring onion.
  4. While the chicken is steaming, prepare the dipping sauce. In a small sauce pan, heat up 1 tablespoon sesame oil and stir fry chopped garlic and spring onion until aromatic. Then add oyster sauce, light soy sauce, and water. Mix well and bring to a boil. Transfer to dipping bowls and cool down a little bit. Serve the chicken with the dipping sauce and rice on the side.
Recipe Notes

If using 500 grams of quarters (separated before or after steaming), this would cost 37 Baht. For 2 servings, this is about 54 cents per serving.

This is another recipe made from a Lobo brand seasoning packet, but is also includes the soup and dipping sauce. Keep in mind, this is a low cost and no frills meal, this is normally sold at street stalls for 30 Baht/serving. This is not gourmet or anything special to look at.

Instructions
  1. Rinse the chicken breast (skin on) or thighs, 1 breast or about 2 thighs, bone in, skin on is perfect.
  2. Rinse the rice and place into your rice cooker pot. Add the correct amount of water you use, then add the seasoning pouch from the Chicken Rice Set packet, mix well, then place the chicken on top.
  3. Turn on the rice cooker to Cook and let cook through until it switches to warm.
  4. About 15 minutes into cooking for the rice and chicken, prepare the soup. Mix the soup pouch with 1 3/4 cups hot water.
  5. Once the rice cooker switches to Warm, let it stay on warm for 15 minutes, then open the Dipping Sauce pouch and pour into two small serving dishes.
  6. Spoon rice onto two dishes, slice the chicken breasts on a cutting board, then pick up the slices at one time and place on or next to the rice, or if using thighs, just place two thighs on or next to the rice, serve with the soup and dipping sauce.
Recipe Notes

The seasoning packet set costs 28 Baht. 300 grams of chicken, we'll use breasts, this is about 30 Baht. For 2 servings, this is about 90 cents per serving, good value and you have everything mixed and ready for you.
