    I found that I needed to use more than 2-1/2 cups of water. I used 2 chicken bouillon cubes in place of the chicken broth along with the water, 1 cup long grain rice, 1 small onion, chopped, 2 Tbsp. margarine, 1 tsp. seasoned salt. I added 2 celery ribs, diced and used 2 tsp. dill weed. I'd cooked 15 to 20 minutes after bringing mixture to a boil and cooking until rice is tender. I added just enough more water as needed so the rice wasn't sticky! On the whole, this recipe was very tasty! I think that for me, adding the celery and regular onion gave the rice more flavor! I didn't saut? the rice! delowenstein

    This tasted great and was a nice side dish to round out our meal. I will definitely make again.

    I am horrible at cooking long-grain rice without it being very sticky. I might try this recipe next time with instant rice and see how it turns out. Mine was too mushy.
