I like how quickly this side dish comes together. I agree with the previous review that it does need something else...maybe a dash of lemon juice or something to perk it up. I would make this again, thanks for the recipe.
This is a good rice recipe to do during weeknights when we have to hurry up. There is something missing. Maybe add more seasoning or more chicken bouillon granules would be better. I doubled the recipe easily. And it cooked for about 7-8 minutes. Thanks Bonnette :) Made for PLease Review My Recipe.
