The ultimate Filipino favorite and go-to dish, Arroz Caldo. This is the Pinoy version of rice porridge with chicken. Comfort food with a flavorful chicken broth made even more hearty and tasty with Knorr® Chicken Broth Mix.

  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 1 piece (5 cm) fresh ginger, peeled and thinly sliced
  • 1 kg boneless and skinless chicken thighs, (you can use chicken wings too)
  • 1 tbsp fish sauce
  • 5 tbsp Knorr® Chicken Broth Mix
  • 5 cups of water
  • 1 cup jasmine rice
  • ¾ tsp salt and pepper
  • 1 green onion, chopped
  • 1 lemon, sliced
  • 1 boiled egg
  • 1 teaspoon fish sauce for sprinkling, if desired

Heat the olive oil in a large pot over medium heat; cook and stir the onion, garlic, and ginger in the hot oil until fragrant, about 5 minutes. Add the chicken; cook and stir together for 1 minute. Stir the fish sauce into the pot, cover, and cook another 2 minutes.


Pour the water and Knorr chicken powder into the pot. Add the rice and stir. Bring the mixture to a boil; cover and cook for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally to assure the rice is not sticking to the bottom of the pot. Season with salt and pepper. Garnish with the green onion, black pepper and serve with lemon slices, boiled egg and additional fish sauce, if desired.
