Simple rice side-dish that has a wonderful onion flavor. This recipe produces a creamy rice that goes well with chicken or pork. My grandmother (my Bubba) used to make this all the time when I was a kid, and it is still one of my favorites, yet oh, so simple. Cook time includes time to cook the rice.
- 1 cup long-grain white rice
- 3 tablespoons butter or 3 tablespoons margarine
- 1⁄2 cup diced onion
- 1 chicken bouillon cube
- 1 -1 1⁄2 cup water
- salt, black pepper, and garlic powder to taste
- 1 teaspoon dried parsley
- Cook rice according to package.
- In large skillet, saute onion in butter or margarine until soft.
- Add cooked rice, chicken boullion dissolved in 1 cup of boiling water, salt, pepper, garlic powder, and parsley.
- Cook, stirring, over medium-low heat for 8-10 minutes,adding extra water to produce a creamy texture.
I quite enjoyed the flavor of this dish, it went well with the fried chicken I made last night. I added 2 cloves of garlic and it wasn't overpowering at all. Plus, I sprinkled in a bit of parmesean cheese right before I served it. Very tasty. Thanks for the post.
This is a great tasting recipe and so easy to make. I made it last night to go with my baked chicken. A nice change from spuds. My husband thought it had a little too much onion, so I'll just cut back a little the next time I make it.
Note from Manda: Made this yesterday, and added a clove (or two;) of minced garlic while sauteing the onion. It was wonderful!! However, it does change the flavor of the rice quite a bit, so if you are not a die-hard garlic-head (like me:), I recommend following the original recipe first. Just a FYI:) ~Manda
