Very easy and delicious one-pot-meal. May substitute chicken with other meat e.g. pork/beef. Stirring is important, to achieve smooth congee. NOTE: Usually when cooking congee with electric rice cooker, i need to click it 'on' a few times after it switched off (automatically) because congee has to simmer for some time to be smooth.

  3. Add more water/broth if necessary (for both methods)
  4. Sprinkle with black/white pepper, a few drops of sesame oil and chopped scallions just before serving.
