      Cut the recipe in half, sauteed onions and garlic with the rice and used home made chicken broth....YUMMY! Definately a keeper. Thank you for posting. Made for Spring PAC 2013.<br/>(served with Chicken Stuffed Poblano Chiles#131427 and a green salad).

      I have never eaten at Café Rio, but love cilantro and tried this recipe. EXECELLENT!! My husband and kids all had seconds! I sautéed a clove of pressed garlic with onions and used low-sodium chicken broth. I cooked in in a low-profile oven-proof pan and cooked it in the oven at 350 for about 35 minutes, until rice was tender. I likethe oven method for even cooked rice without the crusty, sometimes burned bottom. Making it now!
