An easy and delicious recipe for Chinese Chicken Congee
1 1/2 cups oat groats (what I used) or short grain white rice
1/2 Tbsp salt
8 cups broth or water. Use homemade or store bought.
6 chicken drumsticks
6 slices fresh ginger
Garnishes such as chopped scallion, ginger, chili oil, soy sauce, sesame oil, sesame seeds and chopped or toasted garlic
- Rinse oat groats or rice in water until water runs clear.
- Add chicken drumsticks, oat groats or rice, liquid, sliced ginger and salt to Instant Pot.
- Cook on “porridge” button until fully depressurized. This will take about 1 hour of 100% walk-away time.
- Remove the chicken drumsticks from the congee and shred chicken meat or if you prefer, serve each bowl with a whole cooked drumstick. Garnish as you please. Enjoy!
Serve with preferred condiments and seasonings, and/or toast points or crackers.
