  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Spray an 8-inch square baking dish with cooking spray.
  2. Bring chicken broth to a boil in a saucepan.
  3. Pour rice mix into the prepared baking dish. Carefully pour boiling chicken broth over the rice. Cover the dish with aluminum foil.
  4. Bake in preheated oven until rice is tender, about 1 hour.
  5. Melt butter in a skillet over medium heat. Cook and stir almonds in hot butter until they start to color, 3 to 5 minutes. Sprinkle parsley over the almonds; continue to cook and stir until the almonds are lightly browned, another 3 to 5 minutes.
  6. Mix the baked rice, the almond mixture, cranberries, salt, and pepper in a large bowl; toss to serve.

I really liked it, but my hubby didn't. In all fairness though, he doesn't like "fruit with food" (craisens) and actually, really prefers white rice. So, I'm taking his feedback with a grain o...

Loved it! Worth the time and effort. I used all wild rice too. Will try it with the mixed next time. Great change from plain rice.

A rice cooker works best for me (including the keep warm setting), takes less time and is reliable cooked rice. Otherwise, an awesome side.

The whole family loved this! I didn't have cranberries so I used currants and it turned out fantastic! Will definitely be making again.

I made this for the first time for a dinner with friends and they all raved about it. So simple ! I served with Cornish hens. Wouldn't change a thing & will definitely make again.
