Filipino-Style Congee (Lugaw)
Lugaw, a soft rice porridge made in the Philippines that is flavored with chicken, ginger, and garlic, is a favorite comfort food.

In a big pot, bring water and rice to a boil.

Cook rice for about 25 minutes, stirring constantly.

In a saucepan, heat the vegetable oil over medium-low heat.

Until golden brown, cook and stir the garlic in the hot oil for 5 minutes.

To a small bowl, transfer half of the garlic.

The remaining garlic in the pan should be combined with the ginger; cook and stir until fragrant, about a minute.

Add the onion and stir while cooking for 5 minutes or until soft.

Add the chicken and season with pepper and fish sauce.

Cook and stir the chicken for about 5 minutes, or until the centre is no longer pink.
