Filipino Arroscaldo (Porridge)

Introduction

This is a great comfort food. My mother used to make it a lot and I've been craving it lately. At the moment, I am cooking some right NOW! Great thing about this recipe is that you can eat cold or hot. Awesome for cold weather or summer time. This is a great comfort food. My mother used to make it a lot and I've been craving it lately.

(This is making the chicken broth as well)
