Bird Nest on Chicken Congee 燕窝鸡丝粥

I made Bird Nest with Red Dates and Gingko earlier as dessert earlier and have a few more pieces of bird nests left. I wanted to make a savory version of bird nest soup and the thought of Chicken Congee came to my mind.

Since I have some organic chicken at home, I made this congee for lunch and shared with my friend, she too agrees that it is yummy.

前几天泡的燕窝一半做了冰糖红枣白果燕窝 ,剩下的我想做成咸口味的燕窝粥。家里有刚买的有机鸡肉,于是我做了这个燕窝鸡丝粥约了朋友一起吃,味道很是不错哦!

Ingredients:(3-4 serving)
3 organic drumstick/Thigh (skinned)
5-8 small dried scallop
1/2 cup of Chinese/Japanese/jasmine rice
4-5 slices of ginger
1 piece of Bird nest  Soaked 


Pepper powder
Salt to taste
Few drops of sesame oil


3 根 有机鸡腿/Thigh (去皮)
5-8 颗 干贝 
1/2 杯 白米
4-5 片姜片
1 片 燕窝
葱花或者切碎的香菜 少许点缀用



1. The Bird nests I bought here in USA is very clean, I can use it straight from the box by soaking it for 2-3 hours. Drained and keep aside.

2. Place soaked bird nest with 1 cup of water into a Stew mug with lid and steam for 45 minutes.

1. 美国这里卖的燕窝收拾得很干净,可以直接凉水泡发(大约2-3个小时)沥干备用。

2. 把燕窝加凉水1杯放到锅里炖45分钟,备用。

3. Clean the chicken pieces, place the chicken, ginger slices, dried scallop, 5-6 cups of water in a cooking pot, bring the soup to boil and turn to medium low and cook for 35-40 minutes, or until chicken become tender.

4. Dish out the chicken and ginger, throw away the ginger and let the chicken cool down a little before breaking it into smaller size/pieces with hand.

5. Meanwhile, clean 1/2 cup of rice and add it to the stock and cook at medium heat for 30 minutes or until the rice are tender and become thick. Stir a few times to prevent sticking to the bottom.

6. Add the chicken pieces back to the congee, continue cooking for 5-8 minutes, season with some pepper and sesame oil.

7. Add 2 tbsp of cooked bird nests over the congee before serving.

3. 把鸡肉处理好之后,在一口深锅里,加入5-6 杯水,把干贝,鸡肉和姜片加入大火煮滚,转小火炖35-40分钟,或至鸡肉变软。也可在这个时候加入1 tbsp 的料酒/米酒去腥。

4. 把煮好的鸡肉和姜片取出,姜片丢弃不用,鸡肉稍微冷却用手剥成丝/块。与此同时,把1/2杯洗干净的白米倒入刚刚熬好的高汤里。中小火熬 30 分钟左右或浓稠,间中搅拌几次以防粘锅。

5. 30分钟后,把剥好的鸡肉加入,继续熬煮 大约5-8分钟。

6. 盛起一碗粥,加两大勺炖好的燕窝,撒点胡椒粉和麻油,就可以吃了。
