Creamy Lemon Rice

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by MarieRynr

This is a delicious rice dish that is easy to make and goes wonderfully with fish or chicken. The cream can be eliminated, and the rice is still delicious.

This is indeed a wonderful rice we enjoyed at lunch. I omitted the heavy cream and substituted the chicken broth with Maggi vegetable broth with onions(I used4 3/4 cups of broth that I prepared by dissolving 2 cubes of Maggi veg. broth with onions in 4 3/4 cups of water) and butter with Pure Wesson Canola oil. Since the broth contained salt already, I did not add anymore to this dish. I will make this again, it was good! Thank you for sharing:-)
