Exactly how I make what I call Lebanese rice. I use olive oil instead of vegetable oil and always use my homemade chicken stock. I cook it for 15-17 minutes. After it's cooked I fluff it with a fork and place paper towels around the rim of the cooking pot and close it tightly. This prevents the rice from becoming too sticky.
