Nightingale Chao Recipe
Combine rice, chicken stock in an oven proof pot. Combine the ingredients of the sachet in cheesecloth and tie with butcher's twine. Add to pot.
Cook 8 hours in conventional oven heated to 225 degrees, covered with tight fitting lid or aluminum foil. Alternatively, cook stove top by bringing to a boil and reducing the heat to a simmer and cook for 1 hour or until the rice has completely broken down to a porridge like consistency.
Whatever method you choose, after cooking remove sachet and carefully squeeze out the juices. A lot of flavor is concentrated in this little bag. Discard afterwards.
Season well with salt and add more chicken stock if it is too thick. Add chicken meat and divide into 4 bowls. Top with the fried egg, scallions, peanuts and cilantro garnish
Serve with fish sauce
