Chicken Porridge

cilantro, vietnamese coriander, scallion, shallots
4.4 stars
(461 reviews)
This humble Asian tradition is known by many names—”congee” in English, “zhou” in Mandarin, “jook” in Cantonese—but we like to simply call it “delicious”. A creamy rice porridge gets a salty kick from a seasoned fish sauce, and is garnished with cilantro, rau ram (Vietnamese coriander), scallions, and shallots. Ginger-poached chicken offers a heartiness to this soothing meal, perfect for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and every moment in between.

Thanks for listening. The amt of pepper is enuf, no longer have to wash pepper off before adding to porridge. And why is the thickness of the porridge so different each order? One day it is nice and thick, the next day it is watery like rice soup.

This was one of the worst meals I’ve had in my life. I literally threw it in the trash after a couple of bits. Chicken pieces contained lots of cartilage and porridge tasted like perfume. Hate to write such a bad review, but just my tastebud truth

I've ordered this porridge before, and it's been really good in the past. This time, there was no flavor and it was just not good.

Poor texture, way too salty. Not at all comforting.

How does one even market this as slated door?! I frequent slanted door and out the door as my daughters love their chicken porridge. Porridge was way too thick with zero flavor! And the chicken had black pepper all over it. Not Charles Phan

This was the 2nd time we ordered the chicken porridge. The first time, it was AMAZING. This most recent time though, it was way over salted. We could not finish it bc it was too salty. We were so sad!

Enjoyed the meal but there was something,maybe in the chopped greens, that gave this meal an "off" taste.

Should be called Fish Porridge.

The dish is tasty except for all that black pepper. I actually wash it off the chicken before I add the chicken to my porridge. The other additives enhance the dish nicely.
5 Stars
Excellent!

This was absolutely amazing... I can't even begin to express my deep love for this. This is exactly the way my grandma would make it. Now I wish this was available at least once a week on Munchery!
5 Stars
Very flavorful, but I find it hard to believe it only has 290 calories. I made two meals out of it and when the second half was in the fridge there was a lot of cooled fat ( which I love, but wonder about the calories as I count them)
5 Stars
Delicious comfort food. Does seem expensive for what it is but I will order again.

This has the potential to be a great dish. I thought the porridge was too watery, but the flavors were excellent. I had to add some of my own white rice to give it a thicker consistency.
3 Stars
Perhaps it's meant to be this way, but we found it very bland. Watery rice - no flavor even when all ingredients mixed in. Our first miss in almost 7 years of ordering.
4 Stars
Low calorie comfort food! I added salt...

This soup (congee, jook) was pretty good, but not great. Too much black pepper and too few green onions, tho the other herbs were fine. It needed peanuts as another garnish so I added my own.

Delicious but a bit overpriced for what it is.
