Step 1

Sauté Green Onions, Shallot, Ginger, Garlic: Heat up pressure cooker (Instant Pot: press Sauté). Make sure your pot is as hot as it can be when you pour olive oil into the pot (Instant Pot: wait until the indicator says HOT). Pour 1 tbsp olive oil in Instant Pot. Add in green onions, minced shallot, minced garlic, and sliced ginger, then sauté for roughly 2 minutes.

Step 2

Pressure Cook Chicken Legs: Pour 1 ½ cup of unsalted chicken stock or water in Instant Pot, then deglaze the bottom of the pot with a wooden spoon. Add in 1 tbsp sea salt, then mix well. Add all the chicken legs in Instant Pot. Close lid and Pressure Cook at High Pressure for 8 minutes + Full Natural Release (roughly 10 – 15 mins).

Step 3

Firm up Chicken Skins: Open the lid and carefully remove the chicken legs from the pot with a pair of kitchen tongs. Plunge the chicken legs in an ice bath or place them under running cold tap water. Then, place them on a metal cooling rack to firm up the chicken skin.

Step 4

Filter Chicken Stock: Pour the chicken stock from the pot through a strainer to filter out the solid ingredients. In a measuring cup, mix ½ cup of chicken stock and ½ cup of water together. *Pro Tip: Please ensure it is not too salty as this stock will be used to cook the chicken rice.

Step 5

Pressure Cook Hainanese Chicken Rice: Heat up your clean pressure cooker (Instant Pot: press Sauté), pour in 1 tbsp olive oil, then sauté 2 cloves of minced garlic in the pot. Add in a cup of jasmine rice, then immediately add in the 1 cup chicken stock + water mixture (from Step 4). Close lid and Pressure Cook at High Pressure for 3 minutes + Full Natural Release (roughly 10 mins).

Step 6

Make Hainanese Chicken Ginger Sauce: Place the freshly grated ginger in a small bowl. Pour in 1 ½ tbsp HOT peanut oil, 1 stalk of finely chopped green onions, then mix well. Add salt to taste (roughly ½ tsp).

Step 7

Make Hainanese Chicken Soy Sauce: Mix all the listed ingredients together.

Step 8

Make Hainanese Chicken Chili Sauce: Mix all the listed ingredients together.

Step 9

Make Chicken Soup: Do not let the remaining chicken stock go to waste! It is both tasty and healthy. Heat the chicken stock in a sauce pan. Dilute the chicken stock with water until it is not too salty. Bring it to a light boil and cook your favorite lettuce or cabbage in it for roughly 1 minute. Garnish with chopped green onions and serve on the side. Enjoy this deliciously comforting Hainanese Chicken Rice Meal!~ :)
