  3. Sauté for a few minutes then add the cooked and shredded chicken and the cooked sausage cut into small pieces.
  4. Add a good amount of the broth/water you used to cook the chicken and sausage in, when it boils, add the rice.
  5. Stir and season with salt and pepper to taste.
  6. Cover and cook over low heat, stirring occasionally so it doesn't stick to the bottom of the pot.

  8. Preheat the oven to 180C or 350F.
  9. Place the uncooked sausage (1/4) cut into slices on top and cover with cheese.

This sounds delicious. It's one step further than our "Portuguese Chicken and Rice". We stop before the casserole dish in the oven.

Under ingredients it doesn’t say anything about carrots until you get to directions. So does this recipe have carrots?
