“Adapted from Not Your Mother's Slow Cooker Recipes for Two. Congee or jook is a staple in China. Instead of making a separate stock, just use a turkey wing or drumstick here to flavor the broth. This is a very bland dish so it is important to serve the condiments if you want more kick. I posted this originally for ZWT 4. Serve with bowls of condiments on the side--chopped cilantro, minced green onion, or peanuts. soy sauce, and any hot chili sauce.”
