Chicken arroz caldo is one of the ultimate comfort foods during cold weather. Arroz caldo literally translates to hot rice or rice stew/soup. This Filipino rice porridge is a representation of Philippine history as this dish is a combination of Spanish and Chinese influences. Though Spanish by name, it’s very similar to Chinese congee.
