Chicken, Shrimp, and Rice Stew
This stew is based on the savory rice porridge congee, which has roots in Chinese, Thai, and Korean cuisines. Though the dish uses some classic Asian ingredients—such as fish sauce, ginger, and bok choy—the flavors are not aggressively Asian. Instead, it’s warm, creamy, and comforting in a chicken and dumplings sort of way. The dry rice gets pulverized in a mini food processor for two reasons: The smaller pieces cook to a porridge consistency, and the rice “dust” thickens the stew.
