My 2 year-old and I both loved this rice. I used a long grain and wild rice mixture just because I love wild rice. Also I used a little more chicken broth than indicated in the recipe because if you use it in a can you have 2 oz left over after you put in the 1 1/2 cups in the recipe. I couldn't bring myself to throw it out but what are you gonna do with 2 ounces of leftover chicken broth?? Oh the broth I had in the house was low-sodium so that's what I used and it was fine. This recipe seemed to have a perfect balance of the different flavors. I definitely wouldn't mess with the amounts of apples raisins and especially the garlic or the balance might be lost. We'll be making this one often!

I followed the recipe exactly and the rice was uncooked. Let down. Won't make it again even though I think these ingredients sound really good together.

I used apple sauce instead of an apple and added 1/2 tsp each cinnamon and cumin. Turned out great.

The rice was good as a side dish. The first time I made it I followed the recipe exactly and there was FAR too much butter. The next time I used only enough butter necessary to cover the bottom of the pan and it was a lot better. I would reduce the amount of raisins to somewhere around 1/3 cups. They overpower the dish in terms of aesthetics and in terms of taste when 1/2 cup is used. Next time I might grate the apple. Overall a good recipe.

This rice was AWESOME. My boyfriend and I both loved it. I will be making this again and again! I used brown rice and since the bag called for 2C liquid I used a whole 16-oz can of chicken broth. I also didn't have an onion so I subbed 1T onion powder. My kitchen smelled so good.

This is a nice side dish. No fireworks or drama just a very good accompaniment to a main course. I had a yellow sweet bell pepper in the fridge that needed to be used so I added about 1/2 cup of it diced to the rest of the ingredients that got sauteed. I have had a similar dish at a restaurant where they add some slivered almonds to the rice as well.

My family liked this for something different. I was out of onions so I used onion powder and I left out the raisins. I will be making this again.

I loved this rice. After having a busy work week I was being a bit lazy. I took 1/4 onion I peeled and cut up an apple and the garlic clove and threw it in the processor. I then put them into a large microwave safe bowl with the 3 T butter and nuked on high for about a minute until onion was soft. Added the rice chicken stock S&P and a 1/4 tsp. curry powder. Covered with plastic wrap and vented. Nuked on high for 5 mins then medium for 15 mins and let rest for 5 more minutes and fluffed with a fork. It was perfect. I left out the raisins (wish I didn't have to) but no one else here likes them but me. Will be making again.

this was a really nice side but missing something. Will definitely make again but will add pine nuts for sure and probably some honey and/or Chinese 5 spice.
