Traditionally made with rice, congee is a comfort food staple in Chinese cuisine, but this lighter take on the classic porridge swaps rice for oats. With the addition of spices, veggies and lean protein with chicken, you have a delicious meal with fewer than 300 calories.

Heat olive oil in a pan and add chopped garlic and shallot to pan. Sauté until both are browned. Add minced chicken and soy sauce to taste. Mix well and set aside.
Cook oats with water and chicken stock powder until thickened to your liking. Add the seasoned chicken to the porridge and stir well. Add sesame oil, if desired.
