  • Ready In

  1. 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.

Gourmet rice :)

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!

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!

This is the BEST RICE! So much better than plain white rice and better than prepackaged mixes! This has become a 'go to' recipe for me!

Excellent.Extra moist

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.

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.

This rice is excellent as is. I have made it several times. I used it with the Pan-Seared Chicken with thyme from this site and it is an excellent pair!
