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


  • 3 cups reduced-sodium chicken broth or vegetable broth
  • 1-1/3 cups uncooked long grain rice
  • 1 can (4 ounces) chopped green chiles, drained
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon each minced fresh parsley, cilantro and chives
  • 1/2 teaspoon grated lemon zest
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper


  1. In a large saucepan, combine the broth, rice, chiles and salt; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 15-20 minutes or until rice is tender. Remove from the heat; let stand for 5 minutes. Fluff with a fork and stir in the remaining ingredients.
