Trying to Cook

No dinner today, so I decided to try out the recipe "Baked Chicken and Rice" from www.cookingforengineers.com

I modified the recipe a bit out of laziness, and now it's in the oven. Crossing my fingers it will come out somewhat edible :-)

Ingredients (Serves 4):

2 Zucchini
1 Yellow Squash
2 cans of Roasted Cream of Mushroom soup
5 Chicken Thighs
1 small pack of Italian sausage
1 16oz pack of mushroom
1/2 cup of coconut milk
1 onion
1 pack of diced parmesan & mozzarella cheese

1) Slice all the veggies.
2) Slice the Italian sausage.
3) Throw everything into a big aluminum baking pan.
4) Still baking, so we'll see how long it actually takes.
5) Put cheese on top and bake until cheese melts.
6) Eat.


Update:
Baking time was 2 1/2 hr at 350F. Food tasted horrible :-) so I decided to patch things up by putting Alfredo sauce, bread crumbs, egg whites and diced cheese and baked it for 20 minutes more. Now the food tastes good. Lesson today, if it tastes horrible, just add more ingredients until it tastes good.
