Chicken Congee

In many Asian cultures congee is the ultimate comfort food. It is often one of the first foods fed to young children, it is the chicken soup cure-all of Asia, and it is a comforting start to a cold day. Whatever the reason, congee is a versatile and delicious rice dish that everyone enjoys.
 

Ingredients:

2 c rice
6 c water
2 chicken thighs
3 slices of fresh ginger, about 1/4 ” thick
1 large garlic clove, smashed
1 green onion
1/4 red or yellow onion, leave root end intact
white pepper
soy sauce
sesame oil, optional
 

Garnishes:

Fried Shallots
Fried Garlic
Green onions, chopped
Shredded chicken
 

Directions:

  1. In a large pot combine rice, water, chicken thighs, ginger, garlic, green onion and 1/4 onion. Bring to a boil; skim off any foam. Cover and reduce heat.
  2. Simmer 20 minutes; remove chicken thighs and let cool slightly.
  3. Continue cooking congee, stirring frequently so that it does not stick or scorch on the bottom of the pan.
  4. When chicken can be handled, remove meat from bones and set aside. Return bones to pot of congee. Continue cooking and stiring for about 1 more hour.
  5. When the rice grains have swollen and the congee has the texture of oatmeal, it is ready. If the congee gets too thick, add more water. If it is too thin, continue cooking until it reaches the desired thickness.
  6. Remove bones, ginger, onion, green onion and garlic. Stir in white pepper and soy sauce to taste.
  7. Serve with reserved chicken and garnishes. Drizzle with sesame oil, if desired.
