Buttered Wine Rice

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Mandy

From a Women's Weekly Dinner Party Cookbook. A nice change from plain rice! If you have any leftovers, add some cooked peas, canned tuna & some cream for an easy tuna rice dish, yum!

I used some leftover, flat champagne and it worked just as well. I had to add more water several times. I should have prepared more chicken stock and then added it, but I didn't realize I would need so much more than the recipe called for. When I do this next time, I will have more chicken stock on-hand.
