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!

Very flavorfull recipie, the whole family loved it. You could probably add some left over cut up chicken and it would make a meal in it self. Definetly a keeper!

wonderful rice dish Anna. Well worth the extra effort. What flavor, color and texture, it was perfect. We loved all the different layers of flavor. I omitted the peas by error, I forgot to put them in, I must admit we didn't miss them. Thank you so much for sharing another wonderful dish, we had a great meal, I served this with your Moroccan Saffron Chicken. Truly a taste experience thanks for sharing my little Pac baby. :)

My rice turned out creamy, rather than fluffy, like a pilaf. Maybe my rice. But OMG, this was good. The whole family said so. A great bed for Grilled Shrimp With Charmoula. Thanks for sharing - we had a delicious dinner!

Excellent, really tasty, not hard to prepare despite the number of ingredients, and went really well with the Moroccan style fish (414296). I recommend melting the butter in the second pan before adding the rest of the ingredients, otherwise it could get coated in rice and not melt, and then the rice will burn.
