Rice Porridge with Chicken and Mushrooms
Whether its called congee, jook, juk, chok, chao or okayu, rice porridge is homey, soul-soothing comfort food in most parts of Asia. It’s also a way to stretch a small amount of rice into a satisfying meal. Eunji Choi of New York City uses the Instant Pot to pressure-cook leftover cooked chicken in water or broth along with rice, aromatics and any number of other ingredients to make a quick and easy porridge. For our stovetop version, we use short-grain rice (Arborio rice works well, too) and a combination of water and chicken broth, plus fresh shiitake mushrooms for their earthy flavor. If you like, top individual bowlfuls with a soft-cooked egg.
