Oatmeal-Arrozcaldo Overload

Arrozcaldo Overload

Last Sunday, Mommy is not feeling well. So to keep her warm, I made oatmeal-arrozcaldo overload. Overload because I added more toppings with added twist. Instead of sautéing the chicken before adding rice, I cooked it adobo style first then made into flakes.

Adding oatmeal is already a part of cooking rice porridge at home making it healthier.
