Number of Servings: 10

Ingredients

    *Rice, white, long-grain, regular, raw, enriched, 1 cup
    *Organic Free Range Chicken Broth, 4 cups
    *Water, 8 cups
    *Chicken Thigh, 1, cooked, deboned
    *Chicken Drumstick, 1 cooked, deboned
    *Salt, 1 tsp
    *Ginger Root, 4.5 tsp fresh or 1.5 tsp dried (not ground)

    * optional sesame oil, green onions, spinach

Directions

Makes 10 1-cup servings.

Bring liquids to boil. Add washed raw rice. Simmer for 60 minutes, stirring gently every 10 minutes to prevent sticking/burning bottom.

Add ginger, salt, cooked chicken last 30 minutes. Stir every 10-15 minutes.

Optionally, may add other vegetables, seasonings, and more meat, too, before serving. I like to add a huge handful of raw spinach to the bowl before dishing the congee.

May be frozen before optional ingredients.
