    Malriah's Note:

    I found this recipe in a Betty Crocker computer cookbook. So good ol' Betty gets kudos for this DELICIOUS side dish. The boyfriend loves it so much he asked me to cook it when his father and step-mother were in town. (I think he was trying to impress them with my cooking abilities because he had me make my Stuffed Summer Squash also, which I have yet to post here on 'Zaar, but its coming). Anyway, the water chestnuts add an awesome crunch and they go very well with the lemon. we like it spicy, so watch the pepper sauce. Enjoy!

      A nicely flavored rice dish with a crunchy surprise! I love water chestnuts and the lemon and hot pepper sauce add a great flavor to the rice without being too much. Very good!

      I liked the crunch of the waterchestnuts, but they don't have much flavor. I added a little extra Tabasco, and a little lemon juice. I think a dab of butter, and some black pepper would be nice to try next time too.

      Entertaining a lot, I have used this recipe many times and everyone loves it. I found that some water chestnuts taste like tin can. Buy the better brands. I like to add a little lemon juice and butter. This really adds some zest to a bland taste. I also cook the rice in chicken broth instead of the boullion. This is just my personal taste.
