Clay-Pot Chicken Porridge With Dried Oysters & Century Quail Eggs 瓦煲蚝干皮蛋鸡粥

A tasty and easy to prepare one-pot meal 

It has not been raining for the past three days and the weather is hot and dry again. SK cooked this easy to prepare one-pot meal for lunch. The consistency of the porridge was just right and to our liking. It was wonderfully fragrant and tasty.

1 tsp shallot oil
1 tsp chopped spring onion
some chopped Chinese parsley
