We've made this rice several times during ZWT6. Dh always asks for it. This recipe didn't work out as well as another one I made. It needed more vermicelli and double amount of water. Taste was improved by using a chicken cube.It was delicious.

When I added the rice, I found that it needed more water. So I added more, almost 2 cups. I was afraid it would stick to the pan. The taste is great like that. And I didn't use salt. I may also use more vermicelli next time as I don't think there was enough. Thanks Sage :) Made for the Zwizzle Chicks of ZWt

I made half the recipe for a quick and easy side dish. Served with Recipe #423500 and Recipe #228801 for a light and satisfying supper.Thanks for posting Sage. Made for Zwizzle Chicks for ZWT6.
