    About this recipe: This is a delicious Filipino porridge that is similar to a Chinese congee. There's nothing like it when you need to warm up on a chilly day. Find glutinous rice in any Chinese or Asian shop.

    Ingredients
    Serves: 5 

    • 2 tablespoons olive oil
    • 1 onion, diced
    • 2 cloves garlic, crushed
    • 1 (5cm) piece fresh root ginger, peeled and thinly sliced
    • 1kg chicken wings, split and tips discarded
    • 1 teaspoon fish sauce for sprinkling, if desired
    • 1.25L chicken stock
    • 185g glutinous rice
    • 1 tablespoon fish sauce
    • salt and pepper to taste
    • 1 spring onion, chopped
    • 1 lemon, sliced

    Method
    Prep:20min  ›  Cook:30min  ›  Ready in:50min 

    1. Heat the olive oil in a large pot over medium heat; cook and stir the onion, garlic and ginger in the hot oil until fragrant, about 5 minutes. Add the chicken wings; cook and stir together for 1 minute. Stir the fish sauce into the pot, cover, and cook another 2 minutes.
    2. Pour the chicken stock into the pot. Add the rice and stir. Bring the mixture to the boil; cover and cook for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally to assure the rice is not sticking to the bottom of the pot. Season with salt and pepper. Garnish with the spring onion, and serve with lemon slices and additional fish sauce, if desired.

    Very simple ingredients, BUT for those watching their sodium intake I found that you can use water instead of chicken broth because the fish sauce already adds salt plus I added a touch of Kosher salt. The bone-in chicken wings plus all the other ingredients adds lots of flavor. But if you're like me and hate rubbery, gummy chicken skins, I used skinless boneless chicken breast because the chicken broth adds lots of flavor. Thanks for posting this recipe.  -  17 Apr 2011  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)

    I have also made arroz caldo with whole chicken pieces. My family asks for this especially during flu season with increased (may double or triple) amounts of garlic & ginger for their medicinal benefits -- antibacterial, antiviral, breaks fevers, clears head congestion, opens airways. More effective than chicken noodle soup.  -  06 Mar 2011  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
