  • 2 lbs. chicken cut into serving pieces
  • 1 cup glutinous rice malagkit
  • 1 Knorr chicken cube
  • 4 hard boiled eggs
  • 1/2 cup chopped scallions
  • 1 medium yellow onion diced
  • 3 thumbs ginger minced
  • 4 cloves garlic chopped
  • 1/4 cup kasubha safflower
  • 1/2 cup roasted garlic
  • 6 to 7 cups water
  • 3 tablespoons cooking oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons fish sauce patis


  • Heat oil in a deep cooking pot.
  • Saute garlic, onion, and ginger.
  • Once the onion gets soft, add the chicken. Saute for 2 to 3 minutes.
  • Add the glutinous rice. Cook for 1 minute.
  • Pour the water into the pot. Let boil.
  • Add the chicken cube. Stir. Cover and cook in medium heat until the rice absorbs the water and the texture becomes porridge-like. Note: Stir the mixture once in a while concentrating on the bottom of the pan to make sure that the rice do not stick. You can add more water if needed.
  • Add ground black pepper, fish sauce, and kasubha. Stir and cook for 3 minutes.
  • Transfer to a serving bowl. Top with scallions, boiled eggs, and roasted garlic. Serve with calamansi or lime.
