Preparation
STEP 1

Heat stock pot over medium heat and add vegetable oil. Add onion, garlic and ginger. Season with salt and pepper and cook, stirring frequently, until fragrant and translucent.

STEP 2

Add chicken and cook, stirring occasionally, until no longer pink.

STEP 3

Add chicken broth and bring to a boil. Add rice and simmer until rice is cooked, about 30-40 minutes. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

STEP 4

Before serving remove ginger and add garnishes. If the soup is too thick for your liking, thin with a bit of chicken stock or water.
