This is a very simple but tasty rice recipe. Makes a great side dish and leftovers are almost as good the next day.

Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Heat olive oil in a non-stick saucepan over medium-high heat nearly to smoking. Cook and stir rice in the hot oil quickly to toast the rice, 2 to 3 minutes. Stir the onion into the rice; cook and stir 1 minute more. Pour chicken broth over the rice mixture, season with garlic salt, and bring to a boil; reduce heat to low, place a cover on the saucepan, and cook until the broth is absorbed and the rice is tender, about 20 minutes. Remove from heat and allow to rest 5 minutes before lifting the lid.

I give this about 3.5 stars. It turned out and was easy to make but mine was really oniony. When I make white rice I typically make Brazilian rice from this site. I thought I would try something different. It will more likely get eaten just too much onion taste for me. Read More

Followed the recipe and thought it was great! We paired the rice with the baked soy lemon chops from this site and it was a huge hit! Read More

I really enjoyed this rice. It was a nice change from ordinary rice. Make sure to use a mild onion because a strong one might overpower the rice. I would make again! Read More

I will be making this rice again! I made it with 3 cups of uncooked rice and five cups of chicken broth; but other than that followed the recipe to the letter and it turned out great. Read More

Love this!!! We didn't want just plain white rice. I didn't use the olive oil but a little real butter. And heavy on the garlic. Definitely a go to to change things up. Read More
