This is a flavor take-off of a famous brand of stuffing that my gluten-free husband was drooling over. The flavors are there if the texture isn't too hard to get your mind over, or if you're missing that particular stuffing too.

This was fabulous! The recipe itself was very delicious and savory. Could see making this again. Husband said he's had it before and I giggled because I'd never made this recipe before and it's a really good verison on Rice-a-roni but totally worth making. And I mean totally. Will be making for Christmas dinner this year for the non glutens in my family;-) TY Read More

This recipe is great. I think the spice mixture was aiming more for Stove Top stuffing instead of chicken Rice-a-Roni but since rice doesn't pick up the flavors as strongly as bread the flavor is unlike either one as it is delightfully mild and savory. This is how a side dish should be supporting but not overpowering - a definite keeper. I made two minor substitutions: real long grain rice with enough water to cook it 1.5 cups water to 1 cup rice ratio plus an additional 1/4 cup water on top for the dry ingredients; and fresh celery instead of flakes because that's all I had. You can sub fresh finely minced celery for flakes at a 2 Tb to 1 tsp ratio. Mixed everything together from the start in a microwave-safe covered container and zapped it on high for 12 minutes (700 watt micro) then let it stand for 5 minutes. Heavenly as a side for chicken & gravy! Thank you thank you. Just what I was looking for. Read More

This actually tastes a lot like stuffing! I ended up using fresh diced onion diced celery and fresh parsley because I needed to get rid of them but I'm sure it's good with the dried versions too. Read More

Loved this! Improvised a little by using fresh minced celery and onion cooked in the butter, followed by the rice. Added the water, bouillon granules, and spices. Cooked on the stove until done. It had a nice delicate flavor without being overpowering. Did add a little salt once plated. Will definitely make again. Read More

I've made this several times. It's a quick side dish to make on a busy day. My daughter loves it but I think it's a little bland. I'll try adding a few changes someday but for now I'll just stick to the recipe. Read More
