I recommend that you use LONG grain rice and increase the liquid to 2 cups. The ratio should be 1 part rice to 2 parts liquid for long grained rice. I also added mixed vegetables (SEE MY PHOTO). Read More

To tell the truth, I cheated by cooking it in the rice cooker. First I dumped the rice in. Next I poured in the chicken broth and onions. I melted the butter in the microwave and mixed it into the rice cooker as well (I melted it so it would get evenly distributed)... Then set to cook. Turned out fine that way. Read More

I love this basic recipe. I have used it as is and have also added some extras (Like Minced broccoli) depending on the main course. It is perfect when you need a bed of rice for salmon! Read More

Nice recipe! Didn't have any chicken broth in the house so I used a can of french onion soup. I used Basmati rice and browned it in a bit of olive oil to bring out it's natural nuttiness. Kids and hubby loved this side. Thanks! Read More
