  • Pour the chicken broth into the pot. Add the sweet rice and stir. Bring the mixture to a boil; cover and cook for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally to assure the rice is not sticking to the bottom of the pot. Season with salt and pepper. Garnish with the green onion, and serve with lemon slices and additional fish sauce, if desired.

Very simple ingredients BUT for those watching their sodium intake I found that you can use water instead of chicken broth because the fish sauce already adds salt plus I added a touch of Kosher salt. The bone-in chicken wings plus all the other ingredients adds lots of flavor. But if you're like me and hate rubbery gummy chicken skins I used skinless boneless chicken breast because the chicken broth adds lots of flavor. Thanks for posting this recipe. Read More

I have also made arroz caldo with whole chicken pieces. My family asks for this especially during flu season with increased (may double or triple) amounts of garlic & ginger for their medicinal benefits -- antibacterial antiviral breaks fevers clears head congestion opens airways. More effective than chicken noodle soup. Read More

Absolutely awesome Arroz Caldo! When I visit the Phillipines one of my favorite Filipino dishes is Arroz Caldo and this is even better than what I'm used to getting there! I followed the recipe exactly and it came out superb! My Filipino wife LOVED it and wants me to make more. I want to make more! I did not find it to be overly salty as some reviewers complained of. If however you do not normally use much salt you may want to use unsalted chicken broth. Also instead of lemon I was able to procure some calamansi lime which is served in the Phillipines with this dish and made it very authentic for me. Happily and without reservation I give this a 5-star two thumbs up rating. Read More

This is so tasty! I didn't have fresh ginger on hand so I used powdered ginger. I also used brown rice instead of white rice which was still very yummy I just had to let it simmer for much longer. VERY good! Thank you! Read More

My dad used to make this all the time and it's such a great comfort food especially in the Fall/Winter. I always thought it was hard to make but it's really very easy! I pretty much make it as directed in the recipe but with a few changes: 1. I use chicken thighs skin off 2. I use water with a bit of liquid chicken stock concentrate 3. I only use the fish sauce to taste 4. I use Jasmine rice because it's what I usually have on hand 5. I squeeze lemon juice over the pot while it's cooking to really incorporate the lemon flavour. I really love this dish and it'll be a staple in our house from now on! Read More

Arroz Caldo is my favorite filipino dish hands down! My mother in law makes it but she was recently out of town and I had a taste for it. So I found this recipe and it's even better than my mother in law's! I made another batch when she was on her way home and she and my father in law said it was better. The recipe is easy to follow. I have to add I hate the smell of fish sauce. However once you add the broth it's fine and I can't argue with the excellent end result.:) So those of you who add it and think they ruined it you didn't and it'll be fine. I'm sure it'd be great without it too. Read More
