My wife cracked a tooth yesterday and is having it removed tomorrow. She is, naturally, feeling crummy. So I decided to make her equivalent to chicken soup, lugao. The traditional method of preparation is to throw rice, water, chicken scraps, chopped ginger, and smashed garlic into a pot and boil it until it's mush. I made the porridge with a strong chicken stock, good fish sauce, and grated ginger. It's topped it with green onions and corn starch dredged chicken.

Nice. I like the idea of this...not the tooth part, sorry to hear about that.

It's an easy dish if you have good stock as a base. I cook a decent quantity of Filipino food these days. The Spanish influence in the cuisine is extremely clear and it has all of the standard SE Asian ingredients, both solidly positive elements as far as I'm concerned. Sometimes the flavors are beyond my pallet, though. In particular there's a soup, sinigang, that I cannot stand.

Very similar to congee which I grew up eating! I'm used to it being a little thinner in consistency than what I am perceiving from your picture though. Looks delish!

What a great comfort dish - thanks for sharing! Reminds me of Nasi Lemak in Singapore and Malaysia.

Tpbrewton: If you have any related or similar recipes, I would welcome them. Rice porridge has really grown on me. I would love to create a personal hodge podge recipe.
