Ingredients:

Fried Garlic Bits Ingredients

½ cup oil
1 bulb garlic (peeled and minced)

Chicken Porridge Ingredients

1 whole chicken (cut into serving pieces)
1 tbsp oil
1 onion (peeled and thinly sliced)
3 cloves garlic (peeled and minced)
4 tbsp fresh ginger (peeled and minced)
1 tbsp fish sauce
1 cup uncooked rice
6 cups water
3 bouillon or stock cubes
salt and pepper
4 hardboiled eggs (peeled and halved)
fried garlic bits
¼ cup spring onions (chopped)
calamansi lime or lemon (cut into wedges)




Steps:
  1. To prepare the fried garlic bits, heat oil in a small pan over low heat. Gently cook the garlic until lightly golden. Dish out onto paper towels to drain off excess oil. Set aside.
  2. Remove excess fats from chicken. Rinse and pat dry. Heat oil in a pot over medium heat and throw in onions, garlic and ginger. Stir constantly and cook until softened and fragrant.
  3. Put in the chicken pieces and continue to stir fry until lightly browned. Pour in fish sauce and let it cook for 2 mins.
  4. Pour in uncooked rice and stir constantly until lightly browned. Then, add in water and allow to boil. Remove any froth on the surface of the water. Drop in bouillon cubes and stir until dissolved. Bring the fire to a simmer and cook until porridge has thickened. Stir occasionally to keep porridge from sticking to the bottom. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  5. Transfer to serving bowls and top with boiled egg, spring onions and fried garlic bits. Serve with a side of calamansi lime or lemon.
