  • Summary

    Congee is a savory rice porridge often served for breakfast in China. Here, we simplify it by using boneless, skinless chicken thighs cooked with rice in a slow-cooker for a super comforting set-it-and-forget it dinner. Pick and choose from as many toppings as you like to dress up each serving.

    Ingredients

    • 2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken thighs
    • 8 cups chicken stock
    • 1 cup long-grain rice
    • 3 small dried red chiles, such as Thai or chile de arbol
    • 1 (3") piece ginger, thinly sliced
    • 2 garlic cloves, pressed
    • 1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
    • Cubed avocado, lime wedges, cilantro, sliced jalapeño, sliced scallions, chopped roasted, salted peanuts, chili oil, fish sauce, hot sauce, soy sauce, and/or crispy fried shallots (for serving; choose as many as you like)
