This is a rice-based complete meal made in a rice cooker. I make this in a 7-cup rice cooker. I don't suggest using one much smaller than that.

  • Measure reserved liquid from tomatoes and chicken together; pour into a bowl. Add enough water so the liquid equals 3 cups; pour into rice cooker along with chicken broth, tomatoes, rice, lentils, spinach, mushrooms, basil, onion flakes, soy sauce, garlic powder, salt, and pepper.

  • Cook in rice cooker until the "done" signal chimes and the rice is completely tender, 60 to 90 minutes.

Cook's Note:

If rice looks undercooked when the rice cooker cycle completes, add 1/2 cup water, stir, and restart rice cooker.
