  • 1 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp sake
  • 1 tbsp mirin
  • 2 tbsp green onion, chopped


  1. Set your rice cooker to the Sauté-then-Simmer STS® function. Pour in the oil and allow it to preheat. Once the oil is hot, add the diced chicken thighs. Sauté the chicken until it is fully cooked.
  2. Add the chopped onion, shredded carrots, and Maitake mushrooms to the cooker. Cook until the mixture becomes fragrant and the vegetables begin to soften.
  3. Stir in the white rice and continue to mix for about 30 seconds, ensuring that the rice is well combined with the other ingredients.
  4. Pour in the soy sauce, sake, mirin, and chicken stock. Thoroughly mix all the ingredients together to evenly distribute the flavors.
  5. Close the lid of the rice cooker and allow the Sauté-then-Simmer function to run its cycle. This will cook the rice and meld the flavors of the dish.
  6. Once the cooking cycle is complete, carefully open the lid. The Maitake Mushroom Chicken Rice should be fully cooked and flavorful.
  7. If desired, garnish the dish with chopped green onions for added freshness and visual appeal.
  8. Serve the Maitake Mushroom Chicken Rice hot and enjoy a delicious and satisfying meal prepared right in your rice cooker.
