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.
There should be more water (4 cups) and less oil, in my opinion. A good base recipe though. You can dissolve a chicken bouillon cube in the water as it comes to a boil instead of using actual chicken broth. I wouldn't add more salt if you do that though.
Boy I love this rice. I lived in the middle east for over 10 years and I used to have this all the time. Thank you so much for posting this long time favorite of mine!
