Sweet Potatoes Porridge
Sweet potato is super cheap this time of the year. I saw it as low as 25 cent/lb at WalMart. I regretted I didn't buy some at this price to keep. Edda was not feeling well and I decided to cook her some porridge. Instead of the usual fish porridge, I tried the chicken and sweet potatoes porridge. I made the porridge quite watery and cut the sweet potato into tiny cubes for easy swallowing. But guess what? She didn't like it at all. I think she is not a fan of sweet potato cooked in this way. Anyway, you can substitute the sweet potato with pumpkin.
Sweet potato, sliced skinless chicken breast, rice, water and salt to season.
In a pot, add in a handful of rice. Rinse with water. Add enough water to cook porridge and place it on the stove. Turn the heat to high and wait for it to boil. When boiling, turn the heat to low and give it a stir. Add in chicken breast and sweet potato cubes, give it a stir. Cover it and let it simmer until cooked, keep stirring once in a while. Lastly, season to taste with a little salt.
