How to Make It
Heat a Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add canola oil; swirl to coat. Add green onion bottoms and ginger; sauté 2 minutes. Add stock and next 3 ingredients (through chicken); bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer 1 hour.
Remove chicken from pan; cool slightly. Remove meat from bones; discard bones. Shred meat; cover and set aside in refrigerator.
Continue simmering rice mixture, uncovered, an additional 1 hour 45 minutes, stirring occasionally, or until rice is broken down and mixture is very creamy. Stir in salt.
Spoon about 1 cup rice mixture into each of 6 bowls. Drizzle 1/2 teaspoon soy sauce, 1/2 teaspoon sesame oil, and 1/2 teaspoon Sriracha over each serving. Divide chicken evenly among servings; sprinkle evenly with green onion tops.
