Cozy Chicken Porridge: A Simple & Hearty Breakfast











Dive into the comfort of a bowl of chicken porridge. With its creamy consistency, rich flavor, and a healthy serving of proteins, it's the perfect way to start your day.


Step 1: Fry The Shallots

Start your cozy morning adventure by deep frying the shallots until they're wonderfully golden brown. This not only creates the perfect garnish but also infuses your oil with a flavor that'll make the whole dish sing. Remember to drain the shallots and save the oil for later; it's going to bring a subtle but delicious depth to your porridge.
Pro Tip: Keep the heat medium to prevent burning and ensure even crispiness.

Step 2: Prepare The Base

Next, give your rice a good wash and mix it with the flavored oil you prepared earlier. This step coats each grain with a layer of flavor and helps create that gorgeously creamy texture we're aiming for in our porridge. It's all about building flavors from the ground up!
Pro Tip: Rinsing your rice removes excess starch, preventing clumpiness.

Step 3: Simmer Away

It's time to bring out the pot! Combine chicken stock, diced carrots, and your chicken breast with your rice base. Bring everything to a gentle boil, then reduce the heat and let it simmer. The magic happens here as the flavors meld together, creating a porridge that is both comforting and nourishing.
Pro Tip: Stir occasionally to prevent sticking and ensure even cooking.

Step 4: The Finishing Touches

Once the porridge has reached its perfect consistency, it's time to add the final touches. Shred the cooked chicken breast (which by now should be wonderfully tender) and stir it back into the porridge. Warm it up a bit if needed, then ladle it into bowls. Garnish each with spring onions, parsley, and those irresistible fried shallots, with a drizzle of that aromatic oil for good measure.
Pro Tip: Serving warm ensures a comforting eating experience.
