Making chicken porridge

Step #1: Clean your chicken. Cut out all the fats. Remove the chicken internals and clean the insides properly.

Step #2: If you like having the skin, double check to make sure you don't have chicken feather remains stuck in the skin. Pinch them out if any.

Step #3: Salt the chicken inside out and let to marinade for about 30 minutes.

Step #4: Rinse the chicken. Keep both chicken feet in the cut out opening.

Step #5: And fold the wings under. This is just to ease placing the chicken on a smaller plate for steaming. The legs and wings won't fly all over the place.

Step #6: Sitting duck chicken. HAHA. Make sure the water is boiling before you place your chicken in your wok/steamer. Steam the (medium sized) chicken for 10 minutes and turn off the fire. Let it stay in the wok/steamer for another 20 minutes.

Step #7: When the chicken is done, I usually remove the skin first. But for those who like the skin, you can leave them on.

Step #8: Start separating the chicken meat and bones.

Step #8: Keep the chicken feet, head, neck, and all the other bones.

Step #9: Separate the bones from the meat, and remember not to waste the chicken sauce. Keep them with the meat. Good stuff.

Step 10#: The meat crumbs as well.

Step 11#: Boil your porridge and mix in the chicken bones, feet, head and feet. When your porridge is done, remove all the bones and stuff and serve. Place the meat and drizzle the chicken sauce over the porridge and top it off with a few drops of sesame oil and spring onions.

Step 12#: The end. I hope I fill your stomach.

'A' for your efforts. Sigh... difficult to achieve.


hey you never explain how to cook the porridge...

well okay, when i was sick in aus, i used to just throw fish slices into the rice cooker with overflowing water. it tasted blant and looked dull, so i threw in some carrots too. aih, as you can imagine the porridge was never fantastic...too watery or the fish overcooked or the carrots not cooked. quite sad, already sick and have to eat horrible food.

so yeah, pls explain how to cook the porridge :)

I am impressed if you are the one that chop up the chicken. If it was me, I think the meat all turn out crumble. Haven't learn enough skill to chop chicken into even pieces.
