Quick & Easy Meals VI - Cantonese Claypot Rice

I mentioned in my previous post that I'm into pre-mix pastes recently. So far, have tried the Laksa and Curry Chicken from Prima Taste and both were not bad; as well as the Thai Pineapple Rice from Asian Home Gourmet. The latest I tried was Cantonese Claypot Rice Paste. Well, I actually have my own version of "Claypot Chicken Rice" (using a rice-cooker) which I cook occasionally before trying pre-mix pastes. After sampling both, hubby preferred my version :D
