Inspired Rice

Recipe by Malriah

I loved Mirj's Crockpot Garlic Brown Sugar Chicken (#16531) so much that it inspired me to create a rice dish to serve it over and POOF this recipe was born.

The blend of flavors in this rice dish is very subtle and enjoyable. I'm not a big fan of oregano, so I used a very scanty 1/2 tsp. The soft beer aftertaste is really good in this dish. I did feel that a whole tsp of garlic salt would have made it even better. Will make this again, next time with the chicken recipe (#16531) that's mentioned.
