Sesame Rice

 Sesame Rice
THIS SIDE DISH is compatible with any meat entree you serve. One of my friends gave me this recipe many years ago. I made a few changes, and it has been a family favorite for a long time. This secret of the tasty flavor is the chicken broth. —Norma Poole Auburndale, Florida
