This was my first time cooking and eating brown rice and I think this is a good recipe for people who don't like plain rice. It is full of flavour and the texture was perfect using the measurements given here. The only thing I will change next time will be to cut back a little on all the seasonings as I found all the seasonings were a bit over powering. But overall this is a great recipe and I really like that once you put it all together you can just pop it in the oven and forget about it!

This was my 1st time ever eating or cooking brown rice. I didn't have any bay leaves so I left that and the oregano out. I also used chicken broth instead of water and the bouillon cubes. 4 out of 5 of us loved it. Thanks for the great recipe.

I'll never look at brown rice the same way again! I loves this recipe! I will definitely do it again with a few simple changes. My preschoolers have to eat it so I will eliminate the red pepper and add a bit more of salt for DH. Thanks a bunch!

Very Very easy to make! I just had a taste because I'm on a diet but I cooked this for my family and they were amazed with the flavor. After reading the reviews I decided to leave in the oven for an aditional 10 minutes and the next 10 minutes with the oven shut off. It came out perfect! I served this with Baked Salmon as the recipes have very similar spices and oven time/temp. I made them both at the same time in the oven!

This was just wonderful! I usually use Alton Brown's method of cooking brown rice (which does work), but I wanted a recipe that didn't make as much rice--so I tried this one! I really enjoyed this! I used low sodium chicken broth & just threw in a few random seasonings, but I might try the combo of listed seasonings in the future. Rice was very fluffy & tasted great! Thank you!

I love brown rice and I like finding new ways to cook it and add a different flavor to it. After baking for well over an hour, there were still quite a few uncooked rice bits and the flavor was not right. I might try this again with changing the spices around.

This is a great way to eat brown rice. I loved that it tasted so different from many rice dishes. I made it on the stovetop as I didn't want to heat up my kitchen with the oven. I doubled the rice and water but not the seasonings. That seemed just right for us. I also stirred in some chopped chicken and cooked peas at the end for a one pot meal. Great recipe! This will definitely go into my regular rotation.

This was great! I used veggie broth and fajita seasoning instead of the water/chicken bouillon and poultry seasoning. The rice was a little crispy so I may simply not fry it next time. It tasted like the stuffing we serve at Thanksgiving and I'm definitely pushing for this recipe to replace that -- it's so much better.

We loved this. I will make again. I served this with white bbq chicken and fried cabbage. We will make this often, it not only is healthier for us but tasty too. thank you for posting.
