This week, it has been a tough week for my whole family. My kids and I caught the flu. We were quite sick that we stayed in bed most of the time. My kids were hot with cold hands they were complaining that they were constantly cold. The kids and I were having a bad fever. They did not want to eat; the best way is a warm bowl of congee something I grew up with.
1 1/2 cup jasmine rice
2 quarts chicken stock
1 quartz water
2-3 slice of ginger
2 scallion(cut thinly slice)
4 boneless chicken thigh
- In a slow cooker, add rice stock, water, ginger and scallions. Cover to cook on high. Mix well. Once the rice soften. Turn down the heat.
- Throw in ginger. Cut up chicken thigh into slices. Turn the heat on low, add in the chicken. Cover the crockpot. Once chicken becomes cooked and it changes in color, the chicken should be ready.
- Season the congee with salt.
I love feeling warm and cozy. Congee is very comforting. When I have a sore throat or have been coughing a lot a bowl of congee is extremely soothing. On the day you don’t have any appetite congee gives your body the needed nutrient to fight a cold and to keep your body replenished.
