What to do with...leftover Hainanese Chicken broth?

Q: I have all this leftover poaching liquid left after I made the Hainanese Chicken Rice. What can I do with it?


Suggestion #1: My first suggestion is to make it into an even more flavorful broth. When you cut the Hainanese chicken, remove the breast from the bones. Take the back and breast bone, and any other bones you have removed, and throw it into the liquid. Bring it up to a boil then simmer on low for 45 minutes.

Suggestion #2: Use it as chicken broth for noodle soups, wonton soup, or any soup!

Suggestion #3: Use it for congee! Mix leftover cooked or uncooked rice at a ratio of 1:7 rice:broth. Bring up to a boil then lower to a simmer on low and cook for 1-1 1/2 hours. Add more broth if you prefer your congee less thick.

Suggestion #4: Thicken 3 cups of the broth with bloomed unflavored gelatin, cool and use solidified broth in your own homemade soup dumplings!

Suggestion #5: Save it to make more flavorful rice!
