Rice-cooker Cheat’s Chicken Congee

I love ordering chicken congee as part of a yum cha lunch – I find it a comforting and classic addition to the table for everyone to share among themselves. This version is a total cheat’s version, as we’re reducing the cook time and all the stirring considerably (it’s all thanks to my unconventional ingredient choice!). Grab your rice cooker and rustle up this speedy porridge – there’ll be zero regrets. Serve as a delicious and filling breakfast or as part of a dim sum banquet.

In collaboration with Panasonic.

Ingredients

⅔ cup sushi rice

2 litres (2.1 qt) chicken stock

4cm (1.5”) piece fresh ginger, sliced

2 spring onions (scallions), trimmed

¼ rotisserie chicken or leftover roast chicken, shredded, to serve

¼ cup finely julienned ginger, to serve

¼ cup finely sliced spring onion, to serve

soy sauce, to serve

sesame oil, to serve

Steps
  • Step 1

    Place the rice, chicken stock, ginger and spring onions in the rice cooker bowl. Close the lids and select the PORRIDGE setting for 1 hour or until it’s a lovely soft porridge consistency.

  • Step 2

    Remove and discard the sliced ginger and the spring onions.

  • Step 3

    Ladle the congee into bowls. Top with julienned ginger and sliced spring onion. Drizzle with soy sauce and sesame oil to taste, then serve.

  • Notes
    Notes:

    – Sushi rice is not traditional here but actually breaks down faster and gives you that thick, gloopy congee texture without cooking down long grain rice for hours.

    – This dish was made using the Panasonic 10-cup Rice & Multi Cooker SR-CN188WST
