- 2 garlic cloves, pressed
- 1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt

Place chicken, stock, rice, chiles, ginger, garlic, and salt in slow cooker. Cover and cook on low 8 hours.
Remove chiles and ginger. Stir, breaking up chicken into bite-size pieces. Divide congee among bowls. Serve with an assortment of toppings alongside.
Congee can be made 3 days ahead; transfer to an airtight container and chill. Reheat in a large pot over medium, stirring in water as needed to loosen.
If you prefer to use brown rice, you can substitute an equal part of brown rice for the white and add 2 hours to the cooking time in the slow cooker. The texture will not be quite as smooth as the white rice version, but it's still delicious.
