    Step 1

    Add chicken breast and samgyetang spices (jujubes, ginseng, wood, garlic) to 5 liters of water. Bring to boil and simmer.

    Step 2

    While the water is boiling/simmering prepare 1 1/2 cups of rice in the rice cooker. Let it cook for 30 minutes.

    Step 3

    Remove as much as possible of the chicken fat that rises to the top while boiling.

    Step 4

    Remove the wood first. Then add the cooked rice to the water and let it simmer for about another 45-60 minutes.

    Step 5

    Check if the chicken meat is so soft that you can cut through it with a spoon. If you can then it's done.
