Most people, when they think of clay-pot chicken rice they imagine glossy brown chicken, sweet and juicy Chinese sausage, and fluffy soy-saucy rice served in a clay pot. I, on the other hand, just picture the rice cooker of my childhood. Growing up, we didn’t have a clay pot, but that didn’t stop my mom from making this traditional Chinese dish. Instead of a clay pot, she’d cook everything in the rice cooker for a fast, one pot meat of tender chicken, sweet sausage, earthy mushrooms and soy-sauce-soaked rice.

After making the mashed potato spring rolls, I had a bit of leftover mashed potatoes so I decided to improvise and create a Vietnamese-flavoured croquette. I’m in love with what I like to think of as Vietnamese meat loaf: ground pork studded with wood ear mushrooms and shallots, flavoured with fish sauce, sugar, soy, white pepper and five spice.
