Companion recipe: Homemade Chicken Broth


Combine the broth, garlic and ginger in a large pot; bring to a boil over high heat. Add the rice, reduce the heat to medium-low and simmer until the rice is tender, 12 to 15 minutes. Stir in the soy sauce and sesame oil; add the chili paste to taste. Add the chicken and heat just until warmed through. Ladle the soup into bowls and garnish with the scallions and sesame seeds.
