Chicken Parmesan Congee

posted in: Recipes 0

I always thought that congee was somewhat similar to a risotto (or maybe a cross between risotto and polenta), just a little creamier from being cooked down longer. I had some leftover rice and thought, why not do a congee chicken parm. The rice creates a smooth and creamy base for the chicken. Adding the cheese on top to melt was the best part of the dish (I love cheese, sorry waistline, but I do.)
