Easy Crock Pot Ginger Chicken and Brown Rice Congee (aka chicken & rice porridge)

Hello everyone and welcome!

Today I am sharing my 1st official “Fall” dish of the year. This dish is easy, healthy, savory, comforting and delicious!

My goal with everything I make is to use the best quality ingredients I can and have it be full of flavor…….all the while having it be simple to make.

Let’s get cooking………..


1 1/2 pounds skinless, boneless organic chicken thigh

1¼ cup organic brown rice, rinsed and drained

8 cups low-sodium organic broth of choice ( I used my DIY version here)

1 tsp organic ground ginger root powder

1/2 tsp organic black pepper

2 tsp Pink Himalayan salt

1 tbsp organic toasted sesame oil

Garnish options:

Add whatever you like here are some suggestions below…….just have fun with it.

organic spinach, bok choy or greens of choice

organic green onion, mushrooms, carrots, crushed red pepper flakes or sriracha


  1. In your crock pot combine rice, ginger, chicken, broth, salt, black pepper, and sesame oil. Cook on high for 5-6 hours or on low for 7-8 hours. Remove chicken about halfway through the cooking time and set aside to cool. The porridge is done when the consistency is almost smooth. Season to taste with additional salt if needed.
  2. Shred or cut the chicken into bite-size pieces and add back it back into your porridge, stir to evenly distribute the chicken throughout.
  3. Now it’s time to enjoy. Ladle a nice portion into the bowl and garnish as desired.


I hope that you will enjoy this savory recipe as much as my family and I do.

Thank you so much for taking the time to stop by, I greatly appreciate it.

  1. Great combination of healthy ingredients that satisfy the palate as well. Would the dish work as well if you substituted organic chicken breasts instead of thighs? I like to advise people to get healthy sources of fat from other products like avocados, nuts, olive oil, hemp seeds, etc…
