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.

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!

I've made this before and we had enjoyed it. I did substitute the chicken broth with Maggi vegetable broth with onions(made it by dissolving 2 cubes of Maggi veg. broth in 3 cups of water). I'd also cut down on the oil by 1 tbsp. This is a very nice rice dish and definitely, a keeper!

Im not going to rate this because It didnt turn out too well. I forgot to saute the garlic and had to add it in after the stock and other ingrediants were put in. It was great but I undercooked the rice slightly and the garlic was very strong because of my mistake so I stuffed this one up a fair bit haha. Will try again one day TY Bergy

This was a quick and delicious rice dish. Just a little something different than plain rice and I'm sure I'll be making it again. I used Jasmati rice but otherwise followed the recipe exactly and we really enjoyed the flavor. I think I'll try adding some toasted almonds next time for a little more of a nutty spin. Thanks for a great recipe.

I made this tonight and it was a big hit! Our daughter said that she liked the rice the best and she is our picky eater lol. I omitted the onion, thyme and bay leaf (I don't usually alter new recipes, but I didn't have these on hand) and it was packed with just the right amount of flavor. I think that if I were to use the other ingredients the flavor may have been too overpowering for us, but everyone is different so I am not knocking this wonderful recipe by any means. Thank you for sharing this with us.

I left out the oil and onion and just threw everything else into a rice cooker. It had a lot of flavor, but it was far too strong for us. Thanks for sharing!

I've made this twice now. Normally my kids don't eat rice, but they can't get enough of this. Thank you

This was good but I think it be easier and tastier to make a rice-a-roni side dish instead. I dont think Id make it again.
