Chicken Jook w/ dried scallops and century egg

Annie cooked this wonderfully rich and flavorful chicken jook the other day. Besides boiling chicken for stock, she also used dried scallops for extra flavor. Short grain rice was used instead of our normal jasmine rice, for added body. Finally, a couple of century eggs were chopped and added to the dish before serving.

Aloha, Nate

    >Oh foret it. You just use a good camera so they look bigger. I guess really they’re the same size.

    I’m so embarrased.

    I’m shooting in high resolution and when Picasa uploads to Blogger, it makes a smaller picture to fit in the post but links to the original pic.

    First – I have to tell you, I absolutely love your website. I’m Chinese Canadian and stumbled upon your website when I was trying to find a lotus leaf wrap recipe.

    I’d love to know the recipe for the chicken jook.. but it’s not detailed here :(

    Keep up the yummy cooking and posting.
