Another excellent rice dish that paired very well with salmon & broccoli! I followed the instructions exactly - other than scaling for 2 people & it was ready in 15 minutes. Thanx Chia!

This was excellent! I made this as a sidedish for a vip dinner of leg of lamb with garlic & rosemary, balsamic green beans (#60855), Mediterranean vegetables(#24235), and cheese bread(#58496) and plain white rice for my son. Thank you Chia for 2 of these recipes for a most impressive dinner!

What an amazingly tasty dish! "More-ish" is what we call this...we just want more and more! Didn't have mint on hand. Loved the flavour combination of lemon and cilantro.

Very, very good. It took me much less time to cook this than indicated, only about 15 minutes for the rice to become tender. I adjusted the herbs to what I had on hand, using fresh chives, thyme and parsley. I particularly liked the nice yellow colour the chicken stock gave the rice.

We really liked this rice Chia! I used fresh chives and mint and left off the parsley, cilantro, and marjoram. (Just didn't have them). Served with grilled vegetables and bbq'ed chicken thighs. What a great meal!

We don't care for cilantro and I didn't have any mint so I went out to my herb garden and took a selection of all the herbs I have oregano, basil, thyme and rosemary. Did stir in some butter at the end as I do with all rice dishes. This was excellent. Served with Chia's Citrus Glazed Pork Tenderloin. Chia is an amazing lady who has so many great recipes so look them up and enjoy.

This was very good. I served it with chicken breast stuffed with goat cheese, basil, and sun-dried tomato and I thought the lemon flavour complemented the chicken really nicely. I used brown basmati rice and of course increased the cooking time. For herbs I used parsley. marjoram, and thyme. I used 5 cloves of garlic, and unlike other reviewers I thought that was about right. 12 would be too many for me, I think, and I love garlic. I may have added extra lemon juice and zest (didn't measure) and it was very lemon-y. A little less might have been better, but you couldn't accuse the dish of being whimpy (which I think many rice dishes are!) This recipe will definitely go in the "make again" file!
