Great rice that would go wonderful with grilled chicken or fish if you like. *NOTE* I think the 5 cup liquid in the recipe is a typo. I put this together in my rice cooker adding 3 cups of stock and that was perfect. I didn't have the full amount of chives. I used what I had and just put them in my RC instead of mixing them in @ the end.
