Chicken & Rice Porridge

Chicken and rice porridge / 닭죽 / Dakjuk

Mung bean sprout side dish / 숙주나물 / Sukjunamul

Eversince I discovered Maangchi cooking web page, I'm hooked with Korean food again! I only patronize an authentic Korean restaurant located at Upper Bukit Timah once, other than that I only get to savour Korean food in food court which does not taste that fantastic to me. So far the recipes I've tested from Maangchi tasted good and are simple to prepare as her instruction on the preparation is very detailed.  But for this chicken rice porridge, I find the consistency is too thick and the salt indicated is too salty for my liking, therefore I adjusted the water and salt ratio. Overall this porridge is smooth and awesome and deeply infused with garlic flavours!

Chicken Rice Porridge
  • 1 whole chicken, cleaned and trimmed
  • 1 1/2 cups garlic cloves, skinned
  • 1 1/2 cups rice
  • 2 eggs
  • 3 stalk green onions, chopped
  • salt to taste (I used abt 1 1/2 tsp)

  1. Wash rice and soak for 1 hour.
  2. Place chicken and garlic in a large pot filled with 18 cups of water. Cover and bring to boil. Reduce heat to medium and cook for 30mins, covered.
  3. Reduce heat to low and simmer for another 20mins.
  4. Add soaked rice and cook for another 15-20 mins until rice is soften.
  5. Carefully remove chicken from the pot, add salt to taste. Add in beaten egg and cook for 1 min without stirring it. Stir in spring onion and turn off heat.
  6. Shred chicken into pieces and serve with rice porridge. Drizzle with some sesame oil.

Mung Bean Sprout Side Dish

I have a weak spot for anything porridge and Korean. This really fits the bill. Love the salad - cold and crunchy.
