Because tasty doesn’t have to be labor-intensive.

Lucky Peach Presents 101 Easy Asian Recipes is a celebration of “gloriously inauthentic” but craveable dishes for home cooks. Together with the magazine’s other editors, co-founder Peter Meehan has culled their all-time favorite recipes into a cookbook for “easy eating on a real-life schedule and budget.”

This simplified “Miso Claypot Chicken (No Claypot)” recipe can be made without the claypot. Based on Japanese maze gohan, meaning “mixed rice,” this recipe is typically made in a rice cooker so that it’s as easy as adding the ingredients and pushing a button! Don’t worry if you don’t own a rice cooker—they’ve also adapted this recipe for a dutch oven. It’s a no-fuss one-pot meal!
