Lemony Rice Pilaf

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by Lennie

This takes plain ol' rice to a new level. Goes particularly well with chicken. If you don't use chicken stock, this side dish is vegetarian/vegan.

Great rice dish. I used cilantro instead of the parsely. I also used the juice of a whole lemon. I added garlic to the onions as well. Looking forward to the leftovers tonight!!
