      whenever I boil chicken it gets very dry..even if its in broth, I always figured better to pan fry a chicken and then add it to the broth? but Id love to try this and see if I get better results.

            I made this today, and I love the recipe. Mine came out a little more like a stew, or a hash even, because I think my temperature was too high, so it reduced too much, and I don't think I rinsed my rice enough times, so it was more starchy than I anticipated. But in all honesty, I don't care. It's still delicious. The ginger and garlic are magnificent and I added some lemon zest to the broth. I also used chicken breast instead of thighs, and I used low-sodium soy sauce to regulate the sodium.

                    Andy, I'm 71 and still love watching you cook. This soup recipe is fantastic tasting, thank you for sharing it. I have one question tho, what's with the holey tee shirts? Are they just comfy old favorites or are you purchasing them like that?? LOL

                                    Boil whole young chicken with uncooked sweet rice and some other stuff( jujube chestnuts garlic and ginseng...) Korean chicken porridge. Salt and balck pepper is all you need. Yum.

It's a Filipino rice and chicken (kind of a porridge) heavily infused with ginger and garnished with toasted garlic, scallions, and black pepper. It is usually served with Calamansi (like a lime) , soy sauce, or fish sauce as condiments, as well as a hard-boiled egg.
