Pinoy Recipe – Arroz Caldo (Filipino Congee)

Arroz caldo is one of my favorite foods for breakfast and night time snack when I was still in the Philippines. Visit for more mouth watering Pinoy recipe. Most of the time, I would just buy this because you will see street food vendors selling this all over the place. It was pretty convenient for me to buy instead of cooking it because I was living by myself. Although when I was still at my aunt’s house, she would cook this in the morning if we have some leftover rice from last night and if the weather is a little bit cold. Arroz caldo is basically some rice soup mixed with some sautéed chicken and boiled eggs. The combination of the fish sauce and ginger makes the flavor of this Filipino congee perfect. You can actually cook this Pinoy recipe from leftovers. You can use leftover rice and leftover chicken, though some people would prefer to use fresh ingredients. There is absolutely nothing wrong with that. There is also different ways of cooking this. Others would sauté all the ingredients including the uncooked rice and then put some chicken broth and let the rice cook with the broth. That is perfectly okay. I prefer the way I cook it because it is easier for me. The quantity of the ingredients like rice, chicken and boiled eggs are actually all up to you. Some cooks would prefer it with a lot of chicken and boiled eggs. But if you are like most of the people I know who are on a tight budget, then you would prefer to use more rice and less chicken
