    Chicken Broth
    I prefer using freshly made chicken broth. Boil half a chicken in 10 cups of water for 90 minutes with 1 tsp of salt. Let the broth cool and then refrigerate overnight and skim off the fat. Reserve the chicken and shred as garnish. Proceed as directed.

    You can also use canned broth. If you do, be sure to use the low sodium type.

    Use Asian medium or long grain rice for this dish. Vietnamese broken rice is good but Jasmine rice will do as well.

    Optional Garnishes
    Chopped chicken
    Lemon/Lime wedges
    Chopped scallions
    Fried shallots (nam phi)
    Soy sauce or Maggi seasoning


Bring the chicken broth to a boil with slices of ginger. Add rice and return to a boil. Lower heat to a simmer and let simmer for about an hour until it is a porridge consistency. Garnish with the chopped chicken, lemon/lime wedges, chopped scallions, fried shallots and soy sauce to taste.
