Chicken Rice Porridge Recipe (Congee)


Now that the weather here in Seattle is finally taking a turn for the colder and the temperature is going down each day, my body craves naturally warming and hearty food, especially to start my hectic day. I need simple and fulfilling food like noodle soups and my favorite comfort food, congee.

What is congee? It basically, boil rice in water until the texture becomes creamy and thick or rice porridge. This meal is a staple of many Asian country's breakfast food. There are many congee recipes out there. Still, many of these recipes share the basics ingredients, which are rice, water, and ginger, but also flavored with many different choices of toppings such as vegetables, Chinese donuts, fish, eggs, many kinds of ingredients. This rice porridge is comfort food so simple but yet delicious, and you can serve it any time of the day.

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup of Jasmine rice, rinsed 2 tablespoon freshly grated ginger 4 boneless and skinless chicken thighs cut into a square shape. 4 garlic cloves, minced 6 cup chicken stock 1 teaspoon of salt 1 teaspoon of mushroom seasoning (optional)

Instruction:

  1. Bring rice, ginger, garlic, and chicken stock to a boil in a large pot. And salt and mushroom seasoning. Once boiling reduces heat to maintain at a steady simmer and cook, stirring occasionally, for one and a half hours or until it has a thick, soup-creamy consistency, and the rice is broken down. When it is too thick, add more water or stock to get back to your desired consistency.

  2. While congee is cooking, make fried shallot and eggs omelet.

For crispy shallot:

  • fried shallot thinly sliced

  • sunflower oil

  • Pink Himalayan salt

Combine the thinly sliced shallots and oil in the small saucepan. Add a little bit of oil as necessary enough to cover the shallots. Over medium cook the shallot for 5 minutes or until slightly brown, season with a pinch of salt.
