Experience the comforting flavor and easy prep of congee, or jook, a Chinese specialty. Cook chicken thighs with salt and pepper until browned, then cook green onions, ginger, garlic and jalapeno peppers. Top with water and rice and simmer for an hour. Add back chicken and cook until a porridge-like consistency, another hour. Remove bones and add in cabbage, snow peas, bean sprouts, soy sauce and sesame oil. Serve a hot bowl garnished with fresh cilantro. Get the recipe for Chicken Jook with Lots of Vegetables.
