Delicious, easy to prepare rice! Thank you for offering the recipe.
So, I'm a poor college student, and this is my version of the recipe--cheap and simple. I used the rice in a bag that you can make in the microwave, added the 4 cups of liquid (2 c. chicken broth, 2 c. water) needed to make the rice in the microwave. Added the margarine; Italian seasoning instead of basil (that's what I had); instead of lemon juice, I used one packet of lemonade mix (dissolves well in the chicken broth and water). Cooked the rice in that mixture for 10 min in the microwave, and added the lemon pepper when it was done. Super good and easy! Very lemony--much, much better than basic rice.
Great rice for more than just fish. I have also used this with Chicken Breasts in Lemon Cream Sauce, and it was simply prefect. It does use a lemon taste in both the rice and the cream sauce, but we are a family that loves lemon, so it was good for us.
This was a nice way to change up a side of rice and did go really well with fish. It also works pretty well with brown rice if you don't have long grain rice. I probably added quite a bit more zest than called for, but I really like lemon.
Great recipe, my family loved it. My son isn't a lemon lover so I reduced the lemon pepper seasoning. Quick, easy and delicious, will add to my routine. Thanks so much for a dish I can make during the week!!
Delicious!! Very easy recipe, and tastes great!! Followed recipe to the T!!!
We thought this was just ok but nothing special. I like lemon but maybe the lemon rice combo is just not me. Thanks.
I added fresh basil instead of dried. Very lemony. This would go with almost anything. Thanks for sharing.
Very goood recipe. DH thought it was a little too lemony, so I probably won't make it again, but this is great if you love lemon flavors.
