Tasty but Do not use fresh rice. I was so excited to try this that I cooked the rice specially then made the recipe while the rice was still hot and sticky. The flavor was still pretty good but the whole thing was sticky and gloppy. The texture would have been better had I actually used leftover cold rice. Read More

This recipe has become a staple in our house. I just have one word of caution: the peas make all the difference! The first time I made it I used organic peas and the second time I used Walmart peas. It was like a completely different recipe. Read More

Oh my goodness! Super fast tastes great and easy. I didn't have any vinegar so I added a about 4 tablespoons of water to make the rice easier to coat and so the subsequent steam could revive the rice. I had been pondering for a week what to do with that leftover rice. (I never throw out anything unless it's grown something else.) That last little bit of chicken and rice was so much tastier than what I was thinking of and could have imagined. Please try it. Read More

This recipe is dangerous...it was so good I ate until my stomach hurt! The only changes I made were to substitute white onion because that's what I had on hand and used a french wine vinegar again because that's what I had on hand. Delicious! Read More
