Open the lid, remove scum from the surface, and add the dried rice from Step 1. to the Pan. Bring to a boil again while stirring.


Reduce heat to SIMMER and cook for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.


Using tongs, remove the chicken onto a plate. Then add another cup of water to the porridge.


Simmer for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove and discard green onions and ginger slices. Add salt and white pepper to taste. 


Shred chicken, and add the meat back to the porridge.


Add julienned ginger and drizzle sesame oil to the porridge. Turn heat off.


Serve immediately. Top with finely sliced green onions. Enjoy!
