Hot Sausage & Chicken Casserole

Remember when I blogged about ordering in some Colombian BBQ last week? Well, it took us a few days to actually finish up all that meat and guess what? We were still left with almost half a tray of yellow rice. So, I decided to make a casserole with some hot sausages, chicken and the leftover rice.
First, saute one large yellow onion with some butter.

Then add in some sliced hot sausages. I used about 3 whole sausages.

Next goes in the chicken. I deboned 2 chicken thighs, chopped it up into small pieces and marinated it with some soy sauce and black pepper for about an hour before cooking.

Once the meat are all nicely browned, add in a can of diced tomatoes. Remember to drain the tomatoes well. Mix the diced tomatoes with the rest of the ingredients and allow it to simmer.

Add in a can of cream of chicken soup.

Stir it in with the other ingredients. Allow it to cook until it goes to a boil.

Turn down the heat and add in the leftover yellow rice.

Mix the yellow rice with the other ingredients.

Transfer the yellow rice mixture from the pan to a baking dish (spray on some non stick cooking oil onto the dish before transferring the rice).

Sprinkle some shredded cheese over the rice.

Top it up with some Italian breadcrumbs.

Cover the baking dish with aluminium foil and pop it in a 350F oven for about 40 minutes or until hot and bubbly.

Once it's done, allow it to stand for about 5 minutes before serving! I just love how this dish comes together. It's a little bit spicy (from the hot sausages), yet creamy and has a little tangy taste from the tomatoes. It's one of my personal favorites!

Hahaha thanks J.H and Chew. I'm actually pretty much a newbie when it comes to cooking. I've only started cooking a few years ago. I guess it just involves lots of experiementation as well as learning thru trial and error. :P
