Rice cooker One-pot meal – steamed chicken with lemongrass and ginger on coconut rice (FODMAP Friendly)

Have you ever cook a one-pot meal using a rice cooker?  The steaming rice will cook the meal above it as well. So simple and healthy.

1. Marinate the chicken

  • 400g chicken thigh fillets, thinly sliced

  • 2 tsp sugar
  • 2 tsp sesame oil
  • 1 tsp corn starch
