Boiled chicken legs (using an old rice cooker with congee funtion)

Boiled chicken legs are so simple to make, and it does not take long. I decided to use an old style rice cooker with a congee fuction to cook the chicken legs. I did not marinate anything. I just put it in the boiling water and boil the chicken legs.
All you need to do is wash and clean the chicken legs. Take off all the dirty stuff off the chicken until it is clean. Fill the slow cooker with water. Put some ginger and onions into the slow cooker. Place the chicken legs into the rice cooker with a congee function. Turn on to low heat and cook for 7 minutes or until the steam comes out. Then turn to low heat. Cook for another 25 minutes. Use scissors and cut a piece of it to check if it’s all well-done. If it has no blood or pink showing, that means it is ready.
Kids and adults would love these boiled chicken legs. It’s healthy and very delicious. I like it a lot. You can have these chicken for lunch or dinner. The best combination that goes well with this dish is rice or noodles.
The chicken broth that is left in the slow cooker after cooking the chicken legs can be used as a soup. You can just drink it like that or eat it with noodles. Just be sure to remove any oil that is floating from the top. This is a very good dish to make. Another way of eating the chicken legs is removing the meats and making a tortilla wrap or a sandwich. Try the recipe and enjoy.
