This winter, let this comforting rice porridge warm you from the inside out. Take time and care in preparing, garnish with your favorite toppings (like our umami-rich Sichuan Chili Crisp), and share with a loved one. Recipe crafted by Jill Maniago (@jillcooksthings).

Cook time: 1hr Prep time: 10 min Serving size: 6 - 7 servings
  • Chicken breasts or thighs

  • 1 cup sticky rice

  • 1 cup jasmine rice

  • 4 cups liquid (2 cups chicken stock, 2 cups water from boiling the chicken)

  • 1 onion 

  • 1 bulb garlic 

  • 2 pieces ginger

  • water

  • salt

  • pepper

  • fish sauce

  • water



Boil the chicken for about 15 minutes until slightly cooked. 

Pat dry and dice the chicken into cubes.

Sauté the onion, garlic, and ginger in a pot.

Add in the chicken and rice (Make sure to wash the rice).

Season with salt, pepper, and fish sauce.

Add the 4 cups of liquid. Make sure you keep stirring for 45 minutes - 1 hour and adding more water. This allows the rice to fully cook and not to clump up. 

Garnish with fried garlic, scallions, egg, tofu, lime, and chili oil.
