Sue, this is so good, how do I thank you? This tasted like its come from the best hotel in the world. It was very flavourful and an extremely good comfort food. I did substitute the butter/margarine with cooking oil and the Tobasco sauce with Soy sauce as I didnt have that on hand. Otherwise, I stuck to the recipe. One thing that I wanted to point out was that after the veggies are cooked and kept aside, when the rice is added in, its not necessary to stir fry it for 7-8 minutes to obtain the light brown colour. The colour comes to the light brown shade within 2-3 minutes maximum. Keeping the rice without any liquid(stock/water) for 7-8 minutes would DEFINITELY result in burning the rice. This is otherwise a perfect recipe for a lunch party! Thanks, will make it the next time we have a party!

This was really good! I followed the recipe exactly, except I reduced the amount of liquids (chicken broth and water) just like another reviewer suggested. The result was savory, fragrant deliciousness.

Excellent rice recipe! Love all the flavors and color. I added more veggies and had to skip the parsley because I was out. DH and I both loved it. I'm looking forward to making this as a side for kebabs. Thanks for sharing this keeper recipe.

Made this last night for dinner and served with Ginger Marinated Tuna With Wasabi Butter#123869 and Cucumber Salad#125146. DH said I could make this anytime. I cut the recipe in half and used jasmine rice and followed the directions completely. Next time I might add the peas at the last minute but this was DELICIOUS! Thank you. Made for Herb of the Month: Thyme French Forum 2010.

This was great - a real keeper. I added mushrooms instead of green peppers (my hubby hates them) and omitted the Tabasco because my kids are really sensitive to anything spicy. I also used 2 cups of chicken broth and a quarter cup of water - this was plenty, the rice was perfect. The flavors are great, nothing too over powering... blends very nicely. Perfect compliment to a lemon pepper turkey breast and steamed green beans. Delicious!

This is a keeper. I added everything except the Tabasco sauce and it came out fine. Also, next time I make it I will omit the parsley as I couldn't even taste it in the rice.
