Organic White Jasmine Rice

  • 1

    Scrub chicken with salt and rinse well.

  • 2

    Add chicken, onion, ginger, shallot, water and salt to a large pot. Bring to a boil and cook on low heat for ~30 mins, skimming off foam as needed and turning chicken halfway through to ensure evenly cooked.

  • 3

    Meanwhile, rinse and drain rice in a bowl 3 times.

  • 4

    Pierce chicken with a chopstick/skewer to check it’s done, then remove chicken, onion, shallot, and ginger from the pot.

  • 5

    Add rice to the pot and season with sugar, fish sauce and chicken bouillon. Cook on low heat for ~30 mins or until desired consistency. If you prefer it thicker, cook it longer and use less water.

  • 6

    Shred the chicken once cooled.

  • 7

    Divide porridge between bowls, add green onions, cilantro, and chicken, then garnish with fried shallots and black pepper.
