Tastey!! I have made the pilaf often without the chicken, to go with other meats and fish. Left over pilaf is nice stir fryed.

This was fantastic! I didn't have any green onions on hand, so I added chopped celery instead, which added a great crunch. I thought it needed a little salt, although if you use broth instead of water it's probably ok. Next time I think I'll add a little curry powder too...
