Chicken congee 鸡肉粥 jī ròu zhōu
This dish dive is slightly longer, because I had a lot more thoughts while righting this!
In 2017, my mom donated her kidney to a friend in need of one. While she recovered at home, my friend’s mom made her chicken congee. She explained congee is very gentle on the stomach and good to eat when you’re sick.
I’d heard about congee or jook before, but always as an easy breakfast or porridge-type dish that would be eaten during a famine because it would stretch the amount of rice.
Maybe my memory is biased by the surprise and appreciation we felt when my friend’s mom brought over the congee. But, I remember the dish being simple and rich all at the same time. It was so delicious, like a comforting bowl of chicken noodle soup combined with the gratifying thickness of porridge or oatmeal.
Three years later, eating seafood congee prepared by my boyfriend’s mom is what sparked this memory. After eating it for breakfast, I knew I had to try my hand at making this staple dish. I also knew I wanted to recreate the version I first had with chicken and ginger so I could relive that glorious first bite.
Unfortunately, my favorite Chinese food blog, Woks of Life, only had a 20 minute recipe. It’s good for making congee in a quick pinch, but I wanted to make it the long way for my first time.
So I googled chicken congee and came across another cool Chinese family blog that even included a step-by-step video called Made with Lau! I’m glad I have another blog (this one is Cantonese) to rely on for ~authentic~ Chinese recipes.
Cooking it up
The actual cooking was easy, even if it did take an hour or so of passive boiling. While I’m aware the entire purpose of congee is to be easy on the stomach, I recalled my first bite of congee and wanted to make sure this one would be equally flavorful. In case you weren’t aware, the secret is the ginger! It pairs so nicely with the dash of salt and meatiness of the chicken.
The end result was the perfect texture... but I may have gone slightly overboard with the ginger.
While cooking this, I couldn’t help but imagine my own birth mother cooking congee to feed infant me. I’m content with cooking basic Chinese dishes for now because it might be the closest thing to everyday meals I would’ve eaten in China.
I’m also grateful for these family food blogs because by sharing their treasured family recipes, I get to learn one more dish I can practice and cook for my own children someday.
