  • 1 1/2 cups 300g jasmine rice or other long grain rice
  • 2 1/4 cups 560ml water
  • 1/4 cup ketjap manis Indonesian sweet soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup dark soy sauce
  • 1 tbs sesame oil
  • 1 thumb-sized piece of ginger peeled and grated
  • 2 cloves garlic crushed
  • 1 red chilli sliced (optional)
  • 1 lb chicken tenderloins trimmed if necessary (I don’t usually bother)
  • 4 scallions spring onions, finely sliced
  • 1 red pepper deseeded and finely sliced
  • 1 head broccoli a small head, broken into florets


  • Set your oven to 212⁰F/100⁰C, steam only (100% humidity).
  • Mix the rice and water in a shallow tray – I use the stainless steel one which came with my oven. Put it in the oven and set your timer for 7 minutes.
  • While the rice gets started, mix the sauces, sesame oil, ginger, garlic, chilli and chicken and spread it out in a second pan - I mix straight in the dish to save time and washing up. Scatter the vegetables evenly over the top of the chicken.
  • When the timer goes off for the rice, add the chicken and veg tray to the oven and set your timer for a further 12 minutes.
  • At the end of cooking, check to make sure your chicken is done and cook for another minute or two if it’s not. Fluff the rice with a fork, then serve the chicken and veg over the rice, with the sauce drizzled on top.
