This hearty and flavorful chicken rice porridge, inspired by the traditional Filipino Arroz Caldo, is perfect for warming up on a chilly day. Packed with tender chicken, aromatic ginger, and a touch of fish sauce, this dish is both comforting and nutritious.



  1. In a large pot, warm some oil over medium heat. Add the chopped onion, minced garlic, and sliced ginger, and sauté until they release a fragrant aroma, roughly 5 minutes. Add the chicken wings and cook, stirring occasionally, for about 1 minute. Mix in the fish sauce, cover the pot, and let it cook for another 2 minutes.
  2. Pour the chicken broth into the pot and add the sweet rice. Bring the mixture to a boil, then cover and let it cook for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally to prevent the rice from sticking to the pot. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  3. Ladle the soup into bowls, garnish with chopped green onions, and serve with lemon slices and extra fish sauce on the side, if desired.


  • – For an added layer of flavor, you can use chicken broth instead of water.
    – Feel free to adjust the amount of fish sauce to suit your taste preferences.
    – This dish can be garnished with fried garlic, hard-boiled eggs, or a dash of chili oil for extra flavor.
