I needed a side dish to go with my jerk chicken.This fit the bill nicely.

It's only been a month that I rediscovered cooking with thyme and bay leaf .I had to leave out the jalapeno as I was serving it to a one year old too,but it would have been a great addition. I just made one cup of rice , used the same amount of spices and still felt I could use more,especially thyme.Maybe the heat of the jalapeno was missing.I'll add it next time.Thanks for posting.

We LOVED this as a sidedish!! I didn't use a jalapeno, used chicken stock instead of broth, but kept everything else the same. This made a delightful side to recipe#303511. Thank you Jackie-
