Cheesy Baked Rice

When I went home last year I heard so much about this baked rice but I didn't have a chance to try it. Since I have some leftover rice, some roast chicken I thought maybe I can do my version of the bake rice. Is easy and you can use any leftovers from your fridge and with some grated cheese you can have a quick meal in half an hour.

Ingredients :

2 cups of cooked rice
1 cup of cooked chicken - chopped
1/2 cup of shrimps - peeled and deveined
1 small onions - chopped
2 cloves of garlic - chopped
1 carrot - cut to cubes
small bunch of parsley - chopped (optional)
2 tomato - chopped
1/2 can of mushroom soup
1 cup of water
1 cup of grated cheese
salt and pepper to taste

1) Heat some oil in a pan and saute the garlic , onions and carrots until soft.
2) Add in chicken, shrimp and tomatoes and stir fry for 1 min.
3) Add in mushroom soup and water. Stir well and add in cooked rice. Bring to boil.
4) Check seasoning and add in parsley. Dish out to a greased baking dish.
5) Sprinkle cheese on top and bake in a 350 degree F oven until top is brown and bubbly. Serve warm.

Note : You can add other vegetables like cauliflower or broccoli to this dish.

Gert ... the unbaked rice looks good enough to eat. :) It's like the easy "yat-wok-sook" (one pot ready) meals. Does the rice taste like fried rice?
I'll try it for Monday Night Football.

It sure looks good Gert... Add some broccoli pun sedap kan??? In the grocery store here, they have a dish name Rice & Broccoli with cheese - very similar to your dish here... Sedap.

Rita, this dish is a bit like caserole. I like to make this on a lazy day. Do let me know if you like it or not.

Cat, I think A&E will like this dish. Is good to use up the leftover rice beside fried rice :)

Beachover, I get bored with fried rice so I made this. Something different.

Hi, I know this is a really old post but I just wanted you to know that I worship your blog. I'm a student living abroad for the first time so sometimes I get homesick for food that no one else has seemed to have heard of so this is just great!

I made this and it was good although I sprinkled cheese into the rice too and mixed it up before putting some more to make a top layer so that it would be cheesy all the way through.

Pinky, yea this is an easy dish to make.

Joycey, thanks for your support. I know how you feel being so far away from home that is why I put up this blog to post all my fav food from back home :)
