"Good idea with the combination of flavors, but this was an epic fail. The rice never got done! If we make this again, we will FULLY cook the rice separately on the cook top before mixing it with the other ingredients."

"This dish became a Thanksgiving traditional side dish when I first started my family. It's remained a staple eleven years later. It's a beautifully delicious side dish and easy to make."
