This was not the crowd pleaser that it was advertised as being. As a matter of fact, it was bad. No body in my family liked it and they are normally great eaters. I don't even have any ideas as to how to revise this recipe to save it from the trash can. Sorry, but I feel I should tell the truth.
I love how easy this recipe is to make and it has wonderful flavor. I did have to cook it a little longer and add about a cup more moisture in order for the rice to cook completely. (Each box calls for about 2-1/2 cups water each.) And I used the Teriyaki Chicken Rice-a-Roni this time. Very good.
Do you have a subscription to the "Quick Cooking" magazine? This recipe, and some of your others are in that...I have tried this (I got it from that magazine) and it was pretty good.
