The fried onion makes this recipe. Originally made with Vegeta or Delikat , a food seasoning. Chicken cube will work just fine. As it's quite salty no salt needed.


  1. Rinse the rice under water about 2 or 3 times.
  2. Add the oil to the pot and add the onion.
  3. When starting to get a light brown color add the rice.
  4. Add water to just cover the top of the rice.
  5. Add chicken cube and pepper.
  6. The pot is covered and is left on medium heat for 30 minutes.
  7. The rice should be checked on to insure the water has not boiled off.
  8. If the water is low, add more.
  9. After 30 minutes, the rice should be done.
  10. If there is too much water , leave the cover off and leave on heat for a few more minutes to allow the water to boil off.

Easy peasy for sure. The only change I made was in the cooking process. I had the oven on for something else, so I added it in to cook along with it. Made for Everyday Holiday Tag. :)

Yummy rice!!! I made this along with your citrus chicken recipe for dinner, great combo!! I used Better Than Bouillon Chicken Base in place of the cube, so did add some salt. This made alot more than 2 servings in our household, more like 4. Both 17 yo DS and I enjoyed the rice. Thanks for sharing the recipe. Made for 123 Tag.
