We love this dish. I use it in my OAMC/freezer cooking rotation - I prepare all the way through adding the last 1 1/2 cups of broth and freeze. When I am ready to serve this I bake it directly from the freezer at 375 for 45-60 minutes and it turns out perfectly!

This is an excellent side dish. I did use long grain brown rice. The first time I kept the liquid and cooking times the same The next time, I doubled the recipe, again used the Long Grain Brown Rice, but increased the broth a total of 5 cups, and increased the cooking time to an hour up from the 45 minutes. It was perfect, and all gone.

I have made this twice now: once with jasmine rice and once with a wild rice blend. They were both delicious. However, I must admit that I prefer the complexity of the wild rice flavor with this dish. The nuttiness of the rice melded with the garlic flavor was amazing. The wild rice blend did take longer to cook, but was well worth it. The rice seemed moister with the wild rice, too. The leftovers were even better than when it came fresh out of the oven. Yummmm!

It takes more time than the standard way to cook rice, but it's good. The only thing I changed was using olive oil instead of butter to make it a bit more healthy. Other than than, the rice came out very moist and favorable.

Good, easy and cheap. Lots of little variations possible. I always double it for leftovers.

The rice was done perfectly and very flavorful. I enjoyed how quickly it came together and it will be making many future appearances on my menus. (32)

Although my family enjoyed this baked rice...and I got to use up some chicken broth that needed to be use up...I found that this rice was finished cooking in 55 minutes, which meant I had to rush to get the rest of the dinner ready. I turned the oven off and let the rice sit in the oven to keep warm. I liked the concept of the recipe...but next time, I would consider using brown rice and cooking it for 1 hour total

This one is definitely a little time consuming, but I'm a big fan of the end result. This baked rice is a great, healthier alternative to fried rice. We've used it as an accompaniment to stir fry and grilled fish. Plus the house smells divine while it bakes!
