This quick and easy side dish can be made with ingredients you probably already have on hand. It's great served with chicken, pork chops or fish. —Angela McArthur, Snover, Michigan


  • 2 cans (14-1/2 ounces each) chicken broth
  • 1 cup uncooked long grain rice
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 teaspoons minced fresh parsley


  1. In a large saucepan, heat 2 cups broth, reserving remainder, over medium heat. Bring to a boil; stir in rice, salt and garlic powder. Reduce heat; simmer, covered, until most of the liquid is absorbed, about 20 minutes.
  2. Stir in Parmesan cheese. Add reserved broth, 2 tablespoons at a time, stirring constantly, until liquid is absorbed after each addition. Cook just until creamy and rice is almost tender, 5-10 minutes. Stir in parsley. Serve immediately.
