Sometimes I use 2 1/2 tsps of roasted dry garlic flakes instead of the fresh. Easy side dish goes great with chicken
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 medium onion, chopped fine
- 3 garlic cloves, minced fine
- 1 cup long grain rice
- 2 cups chicken broth
- 1⁄2 teaspoon dried thyme
- 1 bay leaf
- 1⁄4 cup parsley, chopped
- Put the oil in a skillet and saute the onions& garlic until golden.
- Add rice, broth, thyme& bay leaf Bring to a boil uncovered, turn heat to low cover and simmer about 25 minutes or until the liquid is absorbed, give a little stir after 15 minutes Remove bay leaf& stir in the parsley.
This was a good side. I did brown the rice lightly along with the onions and garlic. I also added a little lemon pepper to it while cooking and left out the bay. Great flavor. I'll be making this again.
Mmmmm Garlic! This is a Great rice side dish! I added salt (used water chicken stock) and might use less thyme next time. Thanks for the keeper!
Great simple side dish, Bergy! I made it just as listed and it turned out terrific! I'm going to be putting this one into regular rotation. The kids loved it too!
