Pressure Cooker Chicken Congee

Easy homemade chicken congee

Hi! I shared my journey of making my first ever congee / Chinese rice porridge / jook (for all my Cantonese peeps out there) on my Snapchat today so I wanted to link to the recipe on my blog, just incase anyone is curious on how to do it with a pressure cooker. Congee can be cooked in many ways with a traditional stove-top, rice cooker, slow cooker, or pressure cooker. Not surprisingly, the pressure cooker will do it the fastest.

My grandma makes congee every Sunday on stove-top with bones and other good shiz and it’ll take 1 1/2 hours. Apparently, making basic congee will take 15-20 minutes in a pressure cooker. I made a simple chicken congee in about 40 minutes today since I got food poisoning 2 nights ago and wasn’t in the mood to eat anything else. 6 ingredients. Preeeetty simple and soothing = great for sick days.

Here’s the recipe I used! Instant Pot Chicken Congee by Amy + Jacky . I just cut the recipe in half to make 2 servings for myself. I might have used too much chicken drumsticks (3) but whatevs, love the protein. And also, I would try to remove the skin either before it starts cooking (not sure how it affects the taste) or immediately after before mixing in the chicken/removing the bones. I forgot about the skin and it was tricky to avoid eating it.

Bon appetit!

Chicken Cauliflower Fried Rice

Chicken fried cauliflower rice! New favorite veggie hack. (I hate vegetables and I’m trying to find any way to sneak them in deliciously… Sorry zucchini noodles- not completely on board!)

I know I usually post the recipe but I kind of made this one up before and during my cooking so I’m not exactly sure of my measurements. But what’s great about this is that it’s really up to you what you want your “fried rice” to have!

Chicken Parmesan (Pepperjack) and Spaghetti

Hi! I know it’s been a long while since I posted last but here’s something I made tonight that deserved a post for me to remember what I did. This is not healthy by any means but totally delicious. Thanks Bobby Flay and my aunt for the pepperjack idea. This is the altered recipe for Chicken Parmesan (with Pepperjack Cheese instead):

Overall: 14/15

My chicky chicky parm parm (any Parks&Rec fans out there?!) was not as crispy as I’d normally get at restaurants but that’s probably due to the lack of oil I tried putting.. I’m sure if I actually used a lot more oil in the frying pan, it would be crispier. Still was faaaaantasic.
