Ang Lugaw... Bow

A few months girlfriend got braces, so obviously she can't eat solid food too much for a week. So i decided to make her LUGAW(porridge), that way we can enjoy a meal together.


- 4 gatang/cup whole grain rice
- 1 1/2 gatang/cup malagkit(sticky rice)
- 3 chicken cubes for broth
- salt, pepper
- thumb sized ginger chopped finely
- 1 whole garlic minced
- 1/2 onion chopped finely
- 2 whole chicken ribs / thighs chopped (keep the bones intact, this will add flavor to the stock)
- hard boiled eggs
- Black Fungus (tengang daga)
- sausage sliced (for garnish)

(Herbed Chicken)
- 2 whole chicken breast fillets w/ skin
- salt, pepper and oregano


1. Lugaw

a. Without oil toast the garlic, onion and ginger on a pan
b. Add some oil and continue sautéing
c. Add chicken add salt and pepper sauté then leave it to toast a bit for about 5 min
d. Add rice and malagkit(sticky rice) then sauté
e. Add water bout 6-7 cups depending on how thick you want it
f. Add chicken cubes and leave on low fire for about 20 min or until cooked :D

2. Herbed Chicken

a. Apply a pinch of salt and a pinch of pepper on both sides of the fillet
b. Put a dash of oregano on both sides
c. Cook on a skillet until golden brown(meat side)
d. Once the meat side's done, move the fillets on a flat pan skin side and press
e. Cook until crispy and golden brown
f. This will give the chicken great texture

- Put lugaw on a bowl
- Top with sliced hardboiled egg, black fungus, sliced grilled sausage\
- Slice the herbed chicken and set on top

This is great for the cold season, pretty fun to eat while watching a movie. ENJOY!
