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

MY REVIEW

"This recipe is wonderful! Instead of serving plain rice with our favorite Oriental chicken, I decided to give this recipe a try...I'm so glad I did! The rice was easy to make and complimented the chicken nicely. I used low-sodium chicken base instead of the bouillon cube, which made a flavorful, but not salty broth. My husband and I really enjoyed it and I will definitely make this again!"

"This was pretty good. I think I will cut out the celery next time and just use a bit of celery seed. It was a bit overpowering and Im not a celery fan so....I also didnt use the salt, There is more then enough salt in boullion as it is. I didnt bother with puting it in the oven, I just cooked it stovetop, couldnt see the sence it heating the oven when i could cook it in less then half the time stovetop. It turned out fine. I will make again, its got the potential of being real good with a few changes."

"I'm not a big fan of rice, but I loved this dish! I thought I had sesame seeds on hand but didn't, so I used sesame oil to saute instead. It was still delicious! I served it with some Thai spicy peanut pork and stir-fried cabbage."

"I was expecting this rice to be a little bland, but was surprised by it's big flavor! Absolutely delicious. The only thing is that it was too salty, next time I won't add the extra that the recipe calls for, it really dose not need it. This coming from a person who likes salty food."
