  For entertaining, this recipe makes a fun presentation when prepared
  in four individual two-cup clay pots. To season a new sandy clay pot
  and lid, submerge both in cold water overnight.
  Rinse with cold water until water runs clear. Drain thoroughly. Put
  rice and water into a 2 1/2 to 3-quart sandy clay pot; set aside.
  In 2 separate bowls, cover the mushrooms and lily buds with water
  until soft and pliable, about 30 minutes. Drain. Cut off and discard
  mushroom stems; cut caps in half. Cut off and discard hard ends of
  each lily bud; tie each bud into a knot. Set aside.
  Using a heavy cleaver, chop the chicken crosswise into 3 pieces
  cleanly through the skin, meat and bone leaving no jagged chopped
  Toss chicken with marinade; set aside for 20 minutes. Cut sausages
  into thin diagonal slices.
  In a preheated wok add oil, garlic and ginger. Stir-fry over medium
  heat until fragrant, about 10 seconds. Increase heat to high; add
  chicken and sausages and stir occasionally until lightly browned,
  about 5 minutes. Add mashed fermented bean curd to center of wok;
  toss with chicken mixture. Add mushrooms, lily buds and green onions
  and stir-fry 30 seconds.
  Mix cornstarch with chicken stock, wine and pepper to a smooth
  mixture. Pour into the wok and stir until sauce thickens, about 10
  seconds. Remove from heat.
  Place clay pot over medium-high heat. Boil rice and stir with
  chopsticks to loosen grains. Continue boiling until surface water is
  absorbed (about 5 minutes). Pour chicken mixture over rice, cover,
  reduce heat to low, and cook for 20 minutes. Turn off heat, do not
  remove lid; let sit for 10 minutes longer.
