    put a steamer basket above with rice, a bit of liquid and some butter in a bowl. You really have to try it first to get a good sense of the timing on the rice, so probably not this time.

    Got it...it will be a rice-free dinner anyways. Japanese folks need a break from it every now and then.

    Poaching goes along with the clay pot idea I was going to throw out.

    I had forgotten about those. Do you mean one of those schlemmertopf things? That could work...but not sure if I could find one around here....and the small oven is a problem too.

    Whole chicken, or pieces, poached in a soy sauce/rice wine liquid with ginger, star anise, sichuan etc. It turns red, and is delicious.
    Damn that sounds tasty

    Could you also swing this with a bamboo steamer if you cut the chicken into pieces and lined the tray for the rice?

    Yeah - space could be an issue: http://www.romertopfonline.com/recipes.html

    I like to stuff a chicken with whole sprigs of basil and then roast. Normal spices on the outside.

    i've been making LOTS of chicken-and-rice dishes lately ... maybe the cool weather. they're perfect sunday suppers, always lots of leftovers for the rest of the week.

    I'm over-due for making a jambalaya - I'll have to do that soon.

    I clicked on this thread, assuming it was going to piss me off. Surprisingly, it has made me happy.

    It is really great. I'll post a full recipe later. It makes great picnic food as well.

    Why don't you just stand in line for your Christmas chicken at KFC like everyone else in Japan?

    Can you smoke it? You don't need a smoker but if your space is limited you'll probably have to cut it up.
