Fish Tilapia and Chicken Congee (Porridge)

Porridge or Congee is not only a wonderful meal for us to eat when we are unwell but it's also taste delicious !! I guess being a Chinese,whenever I have flu or cold the first food I want is a bowl of hot porridge !!It's understood since we are sick we tends to lost our appetite..Congee have soothing soft texture for us to digest easily ..Since the weather is wacky,it's changed back and forth from warm to cold and now to a very very cold about 40 F during the day..I been sick since last week with sore throat,coughing,nasal congested and headache...yea...poor me:( Alright...since I still feeling horrible, I better sign off to get another bowl of warm congee...till then..


1 cup jasmine or calrose rice,wash couple of time
5-6 cups water,plus extra if needed
4 pieces boneless tilapia,sliced
1 whole boneless chicken breast,sliced
1 inch ginger,peeled and julienne
salt and soy sauce to taste
ground white pepper powder to taste
a handful of scallion
sesame oil

1:Wash rice in a medium stock pot for couple of time .Fill in the water with rice to boiling at high heat.When the water is rolling boil reduce the heat to medium.
2:Add in sliced chicken into the congee and cook for another 30 minutes or longer until the rice disintegrate to mushy texture.Add water if needed to prevent the rice from sticking at the bottom of the pot.
3: Add in ginger and sliced fish into the congee and cook for another 15 minutes..Add in salt and pepper powder.
4:Remove congee from heat.Scoop the congee into individual bowl.Sprinkle with scallion and sesame oil before serve warm..Add in soy sauce if necessary.

Second congee recipe I'm seeing today :) I guess it makes sense as the weather is starting to cool off. I LOVE congee. It's such a simple thing but oh so delicious and comforting. I like mine with bits of ginger in it. Koreans also have a congee dish that we call jook. YUM.
