This tastes exactly like the rice you can get at THE fast food chain. Perfect copycat. I found it to be dry and I have to agree with the others who said it's bland. It definitely needs more salt...

I did the recipe exactly as stated and ran into one little snag. I cooked the rice for the 20 minutes and when I opened the lid it was still really soupy. I brought everything to a boil and th...
