I wanted to experiment with a dish we quite often eat with sausages: Our Easy Family Chicken Sausage Pilaf. While we are huge fans of risotto in this house, sometimes its just not practical to stand over a stove stirring the rice for over 30 minutes. My cheats pilaf allows most of the ingredients to be cooked at the same time with minimal stirring and mixing together right at the end. A pilaf is rice that is cooked in a stock to give added flavour.
The beauty of this dish, apart from the fact that its really quite easy, is that you can use store cupboard ingredients. Frozen vegetables or fresh veg that needs using up are great too. I can always guarantee that my girls will eat it all up as I put their favourite veg in (This isn’t a dish that you can hide vegetable in!) all the family love Chicken Sausage Pilaf.
Because the rice is cooked in the stock, I find there is no need for any added salt as when usually cooking rice. For a little extra zing, you may like to add some soy sauce at the point of serving though.
