These were OK. I had to add a lot more liquid than called for to get the rice cooked. Also, we thought they were quite a bit bland. We had to add lots of salt and pepper and other spices to give them a little more oomph. Great idea though. I will try to adjust to our liking and avoide buying the bad-for-you pre-packaged stuff.
What great recipe! we loved it . it sure beats the package stuff I used to buy; thank you for posting. Rita
This dish is wonderful! I make it at least twice a week. I use different seasonings with the broth, all with great results. Also, I use orzo instead of spaghetti. Economical and delicious! Thanks, LisaA, for posting.
I just finished cooking this dish. Delicious! I used Sysco Chicken base with water to make the broth. I followed the directions and found I needed 1/4 more cup of water for the rice to be cooked. Added the water, stirred until absorbed and it was perfect. I used Calrose Rice. Either the rice or the altitude might have affected the outcome. I will continue to use. Thanks.
Great easy recipe. A super quick side dish. Will definitely make again!
I used orzo and spaghetti pieces and it came out really good! The kids liked it and had seconds, so you know it was good!
Thank you I love having this on hand. I don't normally buy the box stuff and after finding the two boxes in my pantry infested with something creepy crawly, I am so glad I can make my own and know how fresh the ingredients are! I also have a daughter that cannot have MSG so this is a great solution.
I attempted to 1/2 it, but it didn't have enough liquid, so I had to add more. I also added some chopped chives, dried onion and parsley.. THIS IS EXCELLENT!!!!!! Where did you find this recipe???
was good but needed seasoning...will add some next time.
I am not a big fan of store bought Rice a Roni so I took a chance with this recipe. Also, I added beef broth to my rice and really enjoyed the rice. I had to add an extra 1/2 cup of water because my rice was still kind of crunchy.
