Chicken and Mushroom Baked Rice

Chicken & Mushroom Baked Rice

I just bought a new oven (Rowenta Pro 9080) a few weeks back and the first thing I cooked with it is my favourite baked rice. The photo you see above is the baked rice freshly out of the oven, taken on my kitchen countertop. As a kid, it was such a treat to eat baked rice at Swensen’s and now as an adult, it is an even greater treat to be able to cook this at home – baked rice anytime I want, with unlimited variations (check out the different baked rice recipes at bottom of page). I love the end result of my first attempt at chicken and mushroom baked rice  – the taste of this recipe is quite close to Swensen’s baked rice which I simply adore since young, thanks to CookBake Legacy whom I referenced and adapted the recipe from. Bake this just before serving to enjoy the freshly melted cheese. If you are having a home party, bake this in disposable aluminium tray for fuss-free clean ups – this recipe can feed quite a few folks and so far, it has been a hit with my friends.

(Serves 4-6)

- 1 1/2 cups uncooked rice, rinsed and drained
- Water to cook rice
- 5 garlic cloves
- 200g (white or brown) button mushrooms, sliced
- 200g chicken fillet, cubed
- 15g butter
- a few tablespoons uncooked Campbell’s cream of mushroom soup
- Shredded Mozzarella Cheese
- Shredded Cheddar Cheese (I use mild red cheddar)
- Salt & Pepper
- Parsley (garnishing)

1. In a heated wok or saucepan, melt the butter. Add the sliced mushrooms and cut chicken pieces, stir-fry for a few minutes until the surface of the chicken pieces is white.
2. Add the washed uncooked rice, salt and black pepper to taste. Stir well. Transfer contents of wok/pan to a rice cooker. Add the garlic cloves. Add water to cook rice (I use slightly more than 1 1/2 cups of water – adjust the water amount according to your cooker).
3. When the rice is cooked, portion out the rice into individual oven-safe baking dishes (or use a 20cm x 20 cm square alumnium tray) until about half the height of the dish.
4. Spread some mushroom soup sauce on top of the rice, and topped with a layer of shredded mozzarella and cheddar cheese.
5. Baked in a pre-heated oven at 200°C (392°F) for about 20-25 minutes, or until all the cheese melted and is very slightly browned. Garnish with parsley.

    Yeah! – I got the dish from Daiso IMM. Yep you can try out the recipe by baking in a casserole first. Hope you like it.

    wawa - Yes you can cook the rice first, just that refrigerated rice tend to be quite dry and that is more suitable for fried rice than baked rice. I prefer to use fluffy rice for my baked rice but it’s up to u :)

    What I meant is that overnight/refrigerated rice could be quite dry, more suitable for stir frying than baking.

    Rice that has just been cooked is more suitable as it is more moist and fluffy.

    hey, i want to use the same fish dish too! But can i cook this with my mini oven, used for toast and hotdog?

    I am so glad to find this recipe as my hubby loves baked rice! I made my first attempt this evening and it was very well-received by hubby and mummy!

    I will try your beef lasagna next.
    Thanks so much for sharing!

    Hi mint, I have never used a toaster before but I believed that it’s usually used for warming foods. You may not be able to use it for baking.

    Hi PQ, thanks for your kind words. Hope u like the beef lasagna too =)
