    Annacia's Note:

    This delicious rice pilaf can stand alone as a side dish, but it's great served as a bed for savory Moroccan Saffron Chicken. CREDIT: Christine Benlafquih http://moroccanfood.about.com/od/saladsandsidedishes/r/Mor_rice_pilaf.htm

      This goes very well with Moroccan Chicken! I left out the peas, and baked @350 for 30 minutes after bringing broth to a boil with rice mixture. Rice turned out perfect! (I try to bake rice, because I always mess up stove top rice). I also added a pinch of red pepper.

      I made this to go with Moroccan Saffron Chicken 414809, Moroccan Saffron Chicken. I served this fabulous chicken on top of this rice, and it was absolutely wonderful. I have to admit, I am not a rice fan, so this is a wonderful success with me!! I could see eating this all on its on...amazing for me!! Thanks for sharing Annacia!

      Delicious rice, we really enjoyed this. I made it exactly as written except for using brown long grain rice, oil in place of butter and veg stock in place of chicken. I needed to add about 1/4 cup more broth due to using brown rice. It makes quite a large quantity so we'll be enjoying the leftovers today, and I bet the flavours will be even better. Thanks for sharing Annacia!
