Cháo gà is chicken soup for the Vietnamese soul. Nothing reminds me of home, warmth, and comfort like a bowl of congee. Growing up, I remember looking forward to getting sick so that my mom could make a huge pot of her chicken congee.  Here is my mom’s tried and true recipe with my added twist… ginger (and lots of it)! The added ginger will clear up your sinuses and soothe any sore throat. I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as I do!

  • 1 cup toasted rice
  • 2 cans of chicken broth
  • 1 whole chicken (buy at Asian supermarket)
  • 1 whole knob of ginger (roasted)
  • 2 table spoons of minced ginger
  • 1/8 cup fish sauce
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 cube chicken bullion
  • 1 whole yellow onion (roasted)
  • 1 bunch green onions (chopped)
  • 1 bunch of cilantro (chopped)
  • 1 teaspoon pepper (to taste)
