  • 4 tbsp Ginger (peeled and minced)

  1. Clean the chicken, rinse and drain well.
  2. In a pot over a medium heat, pour the oil.
  3. Once the oil is hot, add onion, garlic and ginger. Cook and stir until everything is soft.
  4. Add the chicken and let it cook. It will take around 7 to 10 minutes or when the chicken is a bit brown in colour.
  5. Add the rice and mushroom. Stir regularly to prevent it from burning for 5 minutes. Add your stock and mix it a bit and let it simmer for 10 minutes.
  6. Add salt and pepper and simmer again until you reached the consistency you want. It should a bit thick.
  7. Put in a serving bowl and add the toppings you like. Enjoy your Filipino Chicken Arroz Caldo!
