Rice was good but just not the flavor I wanted with the meal I made it for. I was looking for an Asian inspired rice but this tasted like a bite of thanksgiving. Will try this with another main dish.

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.

This rice was very good, but I used Basmati rice, which I felt over powered any other flavor. I will make this again, just with a different rice.

I was making a brown sugar glazed salmon recipe from this site and planned to serve rice with it. Wanted something with more pizazz than just plain rice, so decided to give this a try. It was perfect! Easy to make, very good flavor, and the sesame seeds added a delightful crunch and nuttiness. It did not compete with the flavor of the main course, yet was a wonderful accompaniment. I will definitely make this again!
