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.

Well, unfortunately, I did not like this at all. I think the main reason was the lemon zest and the way it was added, mine came out with a very gritty texture, and the lemon was very overpowering. I may have done something wrong, although I did follow your recipe exactly. Might I recommend you use 1 cup vegetable broth and 1 cup lemon juice to boil the rice in, then skip the lemon zest?
