    littlemafia's Note:

    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 Originally made with Vegeta or Delikat , a food seasoning.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.

      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.
