The Best Filipino Chicken Arroz Caldo Soup Recipe To Die For!

I grew up in the Philippines and arroz caldo was a household staple. It’s basically boiled rice with chicken or pork that is similar to porridge. We eat it for breakfast, lunch or dinner and I never get tired of it. I used to live across the street from a local arroz caldo shop and we had our own tab and everything.

Me, Aunt Stella and my sister at the kings game

Food is a very important social activity in Filipino culture. Anytime there’s more than 2 people gathering, there’s always food. I’m always reminded of my auntie Stella because she is one of the best cooks in the family. She cooks everything from appetizers, entrees and dessert from scratch. Today you’re in luck because she helped me create the low carb version of this Arroz caldo recipe. She lives in Canada so thank goodness for facetime so she can teach me her ways of cooking and I can put my own spin on it. Living a low carb diet and craving Filipino food is a constant struggle, but I’ve learned how to adapt and make these classic recipes a little healthier! Try it out for yourself and show it off on Instagram with #hipshaker so I can give you some virtual love
