- Use the fat's oil from the chicken to stirfry the garlic, ginger, and the uncooked jasmine rice. Remove when fragrant.
- After the chicken has been cooked down to the center, split the bird into various pieces such as feet and drumettes. Place them back into the stock along with cilantro, and turn on the heat again.
- Place the previously stirfried raw rice into the heated stock to cook it.
- After cooking, separate both rice and the pieces of chicken from the soup. If desired, cut the chicken meat to bite-sized pieces.
