Tiger King: Abalone Minced Chicken Congee Recipe ( 美味鲍鱼肉碎粥 )

tiger king chile aquaculture red abalone congee recipe
On days when you are unwell, do you go for soft diet like congee or porridge? I usually long for this type of diet whenever I am indisposed. My son had a nasty toothache sometime back, and haven’t been on proper food for days. Hence, I decided to make him my family’s favourite Abalone Minced Chicken Congee ( 美味鲍鱼肉碎粥 ).

The Tiger King Chile Aquaculture Red Abalone ( 智利养殖红鲍鱼 ) from HockHua Tonic contains 9 pieces of baby abalones. Hubby and I had 3 whole abalones each, while I sliced the rest for Jon’s easy consumption.

When cooking congee, I like to use Japanese Rice as it is short grain compared to the usual Jasmine rice which is long grain. The plumpy rice has a stickier texture which I find it suitable for making congee. This time round, I added more liquid so that it is easier for Jon to digest. Abalone Congee is extremely appetizing especially when you have no appetite, and it is easy to prepare too. Let’s check out the yummy recipe!

  1. What an apetizing and nutritious congee. I would love a bowl on a cold night

  2. My food when I am unwell, then again, I love congee anytime of the day. This congee must be included as my fav into my list as well.

  3. Looks wonderful and very tasty :-)

  4. I have never tried a congee. Your recipe really got me interested in trying it. I love rice and chicken and I bet these veggies really make all the difference. It is interesting that you also add peanuts. I haven't tried adding them to cooked meals before... This must taste great.

    Where I'm from we have many sayings that emphasize the importance of eating food that you can eat only with a spoon- meaning that it is important to eat healthy... for example a nice soup, porridge, risotto etc...all those dishes contribute to our health and help boost our immune system.

  5. never knew you cloud cook a whole meal in the recipe cooker.

  6. Hope your son is doing better---I bet he enjoyed this comfort food!

  7. I've never tried something similar but seems a very nutritional, tasty but light food!
    Very interesting recipe! :)

  8. Lovely presentations, Shirley!

  9. I love congee especially when it's cold. The addition of abalone really adds a touch of decadence to this congee and it looks totally delicious!

  10. Delicious!

  11. I don't mind falling sick if I get to eat your abalone congee. (*wink*) I've never try Hock Hua's baby abalone but have tried their large one thou. I think it's convenient with the baby one, shall look out for it. Thanks for sharing.

  12. ;D

    Isso parece ser bom!

    Ótima quinta!

    Beijo! ^^

  13. Simple and delicious! My parents love congee and my mother in particular loves adding abalone into hers! We like mince pork instead of chicken and I love adding pickled chye sim and bamboo shoots to my congee sometimes! We use the stock from the canned abalone too cook the congee and it really is flavorful!

  14. Never tried but looks interesting.. in Europe we don't eat abalone or something like this.. it's a great typical Asian meal.

  15. This looks amazing. I am drooling over the abalone. I love congee with lots of ingredients. This is it for me! ^.^

  16. Thanks for this new recipe, you always surprise me.

  17. May I know why is there two timing shown in the pic. One is 25mins another is 30mins. I tried to cook in rice cooker but rice seems uncooked even if I use porridge mode. :(

    1. You can ignore the timing & just put on auto porridge mode as different rice cooker works differently.

      Just cook your porridge as what you do usually. Open to check occasionally & add ingredients in stages as explained above.

  18. Abalone galore. I bet the groundnuts make the congee taste sweeter and delicious.

  19. I'm going to try this for my elderly mom who is recovering from cancer. Thank you for the recipe!

    1. Thanks for popping by, Cindy! My Bro-in-law is suffering from 4th stage cancer & was given 6mths to live. It has already been 5 yrs & he’s still living well. It’s nice to hear that one is recovering from cancer.

      Do check with your doctor if it’s ok to use canned food, else you can try adding seafood etc instead. I’ve a video tutorial here on making Seafood Porridge under the My Recipe tab, or you can use the Search button on the top right to look for it. Take care. xoxo


A lovely note makes a beautiful day!
