Chicken & Chinese Sausage Clay Pot Rice

Chicken & Chinese Sausage Clay Pot Rice

Happy New Year everyone!

Many of you are probably still reeling from last night’s festivities (I know we are), so I’m posting this delicious, easy-to-make clay pot rice dish to help you get over that hangover. Meaty and substantial, it’s a comforting dish that harkens back to Ren’s childhood. Her mother would soak Chinese sausage in a vinegar-sugar-shallot mixture and serve it to them for breakfast.

Many of us only know Chinese sausage as a component of fried rice, so it’s nice to see it as the star of a dish. Enjoy and best wishes for 2015!

    I love your recipes! I will certainly try them all out. I will just have to double or maybe triple the amount of the ingredients as I’m cooking for a bunch of foodies. Keep on posting, thank you.
