Last week, I tried a new dish - cheese baked rice. The girls and I had tried cheese-baked rice at several restaurants when we were back in Ipoh this year and I had told them that some day, I am going to try dishing it out.
It is pretty simple and I did not follow any recipe. I diced some chicken fillet and marinated them with soy sauce, mixed herbs, garlic salt and pepper in the morning. I like to do all the cooking preparation like cutting and marinating in the morning. Once this chore is over and done with, I can sit at my work place without having to worry about it. In the evening, I stir fried the chicken fillet with big onions and garlic, red and yellow bell pepper, diced pumpkin and fresh sweet corn kernels.
Cooked rice is placed in a corningware. The ingredients are then transferred into the rice-filled corningware.
Then Alycia helped me to mix the ingredients with the rice.
Next Alycia poured in half a packet of parmesan cheese and 4 slices of cheddar cheese on the dish.
This is how it looks before being baked in the oven for about 15 minutes, uncovered.
That's the final product! Add some chopped spring onions or you can even throw in more cheese if you like it really cheeeeesy!
My homemade baked-cheese rice was absolutely delightful and my girls totally loved it. It ain't very hard to whip up and I am definitely going to cook this dish more often! :)
The yellowish outcome of the last two pix was caused by the yellow lighting at my dining table. Actual color of this dish was way more appealing ;)
