Recipe: 糯米鸡 Loh Mai Kai (Glutinous Rice With Chicken)

This was my first time cooking <Loh Mai Kai 糯米鸡>, its name comes from Cantonese means glutinous rice with chicken, it's one of the dishes served at any "dim sum" restaurant for breakfast in Malaysia. Yet it's simple to be prepared as 1,2,3. Despite the glutinous rice is kinda starchy compares to ordinary rice and the portion to get fulled is half of the portion of ordinary rice, yet my honey ables to eat 3 of them each time, he loves it very much.

2             Chicken drumstick ( cut into small cubes )
2             Chicken breast (cut into small cubes)
600g       Glutinous Rice (soaked)
8             Mushroom (optional, I didn't add because my honey doesn't fond of its smell)
2             Chinese sausage in slices (optional)
300g       Char siew or roasted pork in slices (optinal)
