This is soo rich and yummy! Instead of a seasoning packet (we don't have rice mixes here!), I used Rice Seasoning Mix. I'm not too fond of mushrooms, so I used sliced water chestnuts, which added some nice crunch! Also omitted the butter. A fabulous side dish - I will definitely try this as a main dish too by adding cooked & seasoned chicken bits... Mmm! Thank you very much for sharing!

THIS was fabulous! But...I kinda "doctored" it up a bit. Instead of canned mushrooms, I used sliced sundried tomatoes in oil, jarred artichoke hearts, and shrimp to make it more of a dinner. And then at the last five minutes, I topped with grated parm and cheddar and broiled. MMmmm! Thank you so much for sharing such a delicious and easy recipe!!! LA :-)
