1 (2 inch) piece
fresh ginger, peeled and thinly sliced
2 1/4 pounds
chicken wings, split and tips discarded
5 1/4 cups
glutinous sweet rice
salt and pepper to taste
green onion, chopped
fish sauce for sprinkling, 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.
Needs chicken Bouillon! Too salty!
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.
i never had this in our home growing up. i heard about it and tried to make this now that i own my own pots and pans. really simple and good!!! please post more filipino dishes coz i wanna learn... :)
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!
Easy to follow recipe and it tasted great. I purchased the glutinous rice at the local Oriental store.
i miss this dish its great in winter
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.
