Been on such a porridge-y binge recently that I’ve been cooking them non-stop ! LOL. Basically also because I wanna go on a diet, so some light dishes would be good, especially after all the CNY feasting and stuffs.
And well since I have some leftover abalone and roast chicken from the CNY, so I make use of both and churn them into a simple and delicious Abalone and Shredded Chicken Porridge !
Always love such easy one pot dishes ! But don’t get mistaken that I actually cooked this in a claypot, though I wish I could. But it’s not easy cooking porridge in a claypot as the rice will stick horribly to the bottom of the claypot and get burnt very easily. So what I did was to start cooking it in a normal pot before transferring the porridge to the claypot at the end to finish it off. One good thing about serving porridge in a claypot is that the heat retention is pretty good and it is still warm even when I am almost finishing it.
So here’s a quick and easy recipe to share ! And well, since I have finished all my abalone for the CNY, I won’t have anymore abalone to cook this dish anytime soon ! Haha !!
