Tips for Making Thick Textured Chicken Porridge

There are several things you need to pay attention to when making the Yellow Sauce Chicken Porridge recipe so that it has a thick texture. Check out the following tips:

The delicious chicken porridge has a thick, thick texture and has the right savory taste. Therefore, you need to use fluffier rice. So that when cooked with water, the texture becomes soft.

The texture of the porridge that is too runny is not good. Because you will feel like you are drinking starch water. The correct ratio of water and rice is 10:1, that is, every 1 liter of water for 100 grams of rice.

Parboiled rice contains a small amount of rice starch, so even if you boil it for a long time it won’t thicken completely. In fact, the porridge that looks thick when you stir it and let it sit for a while will immediately runny.                                   

2. How to Cook Condensed Porridge Correctly  

Bring the water to a boil first, then add the rice that you washed earlier, then cook on low heat until the rice is soft and cracked. Continue boiling until the rice becomes mush and thickens.

Use aluminum pans or pans with a non-stick coating to avoid burning the bubbles on the bottom. Stir the porridge occasionally so it doesn’t get crusty. Watch your stove fire and don’t use high heat. Because the porridge is very easy to burn.            

3. Chicken meat can be separated or mixed

You can mix the chicken with the rice or cook it separately. Later, you just need to shred the chicken meat finely when you serve it. You can fry or boil the chicken. Just according to taste.

If your chicken and rice are boiled at the same time, the taste of the porridge tends to be more delicious and savory, you can also cook the chicken and rice separately, but replace the rice water with chicken broth during the boiling process. This method is generally used in Chinese restaurants.       

4. Seasoning and Broth

You can use chicken broth as water to boil the porridge, in order to get the natural savory taste of the chicken. In addition, you can also add mushroom powder or instant chicken broth if you don’t have chicken broth.

Season the chicken porridge with your finely chopped ginger. Generally, traditional chicken porridge adds lemongrass and bay leaf. Because these two spices will produce a more fragrant aroma. Once the chicken porridge is thickened and cooked through, you should discard the lemongrass and bay leaf.  

5. Add Complementary Ingredients

You can add sliced ​​grilled or boiled chicken, coriander leaves, soy sauced eggs, finely sliced ​​ginger, sliced ​​spring onions, and fried onions. Choice of other complementary ingredients, namely shredded boiled or fried chicken, sliced ​​green onions, sweet soy sauce, starch crackers, fried peanuts or soybeans, finely sliced ​​celery, and chili sauce. Don’t forget to pour seasoned yellow coconut milk or chicken broth.
