It's been awhile I make Chicken Casserole Rice.I think the last time I ate this kind of rice was years ago.The key ingredients of this dish is Chinese sausage,salted fish,shitake mushroom,fried shallot lastly don't forget about chicken..But I didn't realised I run out Chinese sausage,so I have to cook this dish without it..Nonetheless the flavor is still great!! The most important step to make this dish taste great is to marinate the chicken with special spices overnight. To make life easier this dish can be cook in rice cooker but my 10 years rice cooker sometimes can go bonker ,so instead of using rice cooker I used steamer to steam this dish..neat and tidy to said it's healthier then fried !!
2 cups of jasmine rice,washed few times and drained
5 drumsticks,washed and cut 1/2
6-7 shitake mushroom,soaked until soft and cut 1/2
