Simple and straight-forward, this looks like a tasty side dish! May sub the chicken broth with vegetable broth, to make vegetarian-friendly! Taken from; posted for ZWT.

I scaled back for 3 serves and used a low GI rice by Sun Rise which is between a white and brown rice and it did take nearly 30 minutes before all the liquid was absorbed but the flavour to the rice was outstanding and it amazed me how little five spice was needed to give so much flavour , thank you alligirl made for Everyday Is A Holiday.
