Chicken congee is the Chinese answer to chicken soup. It is a comforting dish that is often served to the ill. It is a casual dish that is often eaten for breakfast or for a late meal. With a few condiments this dish can be made into something a little special but it is important that you begin with a good flavoured stock to really make it tasty.
Chicken congee also makes great baby food as the rice is cooked with stock to a mushy porridge like mixture.
