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.

The flavor of this rice is fantastic! I used brown rice so maybe that's why it took a LOT longer to cook. Even after 20 minutes, covered, it wasn't done. Still, I'll plan ahead a bit more and make this more often. Used 6 T butter but could probably cut back. Thanks!
