Rice Congee With Chicken

20 ingredients
4-6 servings
Sometime ago I saw a program on television where they made this with pork. The dish looked very interesting to me and healthy. I have made it now several times as a soup and added my own ingredients. This is what I found out about congee. It's a boiled rice porridge eaten by the Chinese for breakfast. In various areas they will add fermented bean curd, pickles or greens. In the South, meat, chicken, roast duck or fermented eggs are added. The rice will thicken the soup. I went for chicken and mushrooms plus some vegetables, I like to serve this soup/porridge with tea-marbled eggs(Tea Marbled Eggs) Depending on availabilty and price I do sometimes substitute mushrooms for the shiitake My husband likes the congee sprinkled with chilies for an extra kick. If you make this in advance it will probably be thickened when you reheat it, just add some water or chicken stock.
