Lemony Herbed Rice Recipe

I substituted reduced-sodium chicken broth for the rich chicken stock that was originally called for in this recipe. It's a great side dish to serve with grilled fish or chicken for a tasty low-fat meal. —Connie Rank-Smith of Sherwood, Wisconsin

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Nov. 15, 2010

This rice dish was delicious and very versatile. I served it as a side to baked tilapia, but it would go very well with a chicken or pork dish as well. I replaced the canned chillies with 3 fresh jalapenos, chopped. I did not have the fresh herbs on-hand, so I used approximately 1 tsp of dried herbs for each Tbsp of fresh, rubbing them between my palms to release the flavor. My boyfriend who is not normally a fan of rice in general REALLY liked it. I will definitely make this again, and try some different variations.
