Arroz Caldo is a Filipino rice porridge or congee, made with glutinous or sticky rice and flavored with ginger and other spices. The main difference of Arroz Caldo from other rice porridge, like Goto or Lugaw, is that it uses chicken meat and sometimes chicken liver and hard-boiled egg.  Although it is known to be a good comfort food for the sick especially during the rainy season, it is also usually served as breakfast because it is filling and nutritious.
