Chicken and Shiitake Mushrooms Rice

An immaculate gluten free one-pot baked Chinese dish with both meat and protein packed shiitake mushrooms. My inspiration for this dish came from the traditional claypot chicken rice, normally a dinner dish in southern China, Malaysia and Singapore. It is usually served with Chinese sausages (lap cheong) and steamed vegetables like choy sum. As Chinese sausages are not gluten free, I have substituted this with gluten free leg ham in my recipe. This recipe is also dairy free, egg free, nut free.

Shiitake Mushroom is deemed to be a gourmet delicacy around the world for its intense flavour. It has also long been acclaimed as an Asian superfood due to its medicinal properties, widely used in ancient Chinese medicine as a naturally healing food. It comprises extensive amount of long chain sugars, called polysaccharides, which is rich in nutrients. It is not only iron rich but contains vitamins A, B, C and D group of vitamins. Researched medicinal benefits include cholesterol lowering, strengthening the immune system, preventing cancer and heart disease, improving circulation and preventing thrombosis, treating fatigue and viral infections.
