This is the best Greek rice dish recipe that I've found! My husband and daughter love it with chicken souvlaki and lemon potatoes!

My hubby and I loved it! My kiddos all enjoyed it as well. I did not have any savory, so I used a little thyme and sage mixed instead. I did think that it needed a tiny bit of salt, so I added that. My husband enjoyed it so much that he barely touched the chicken we had with it, and at more rice! Thanks!

Very nice! I used Jasmine rice and simmered for about 15 minutes which worked well. I didn't have the savory but will try it with it next time.

Just what I needed to go with feta chicken and a Greek salad. Very good!

Fabulous, just like they serve at my favorite Greek restaurant! Served with chicken souvlaki and grated sauteed zucchini. Was a little nervous browning over high heat, smelled like burned popcorn and smoked up the kitchen a little. (Still learning how to use an electric stove vs a gas stove ahahah) Only thing I did different was add a tbsp of olive oil after it was cooked to give it more of the consistency I am used to at the restaurant. Thank you for sharing!

This was a very good rice dish. I didn't get the Greek part of it, it just tasted like good rice. But I can't say that I know what Greek Rice SHOULD taste like. In any case, this would go well with any dish. I served it with Greek Seafood Skewers and it was great!

Mmmm, very good! I didn't have any parsley, so skipped that. Added instead one rib of celery, finely chopped, with the onions, garlic, and rice. Served with marinated pork skewers, steamed green beans, and a spinach salad. Thanks for sharing your family recipe with us!

Everyone in the family enjoyed this rice, we will be adding this to our list of regulars for sure. The only thing I may do different is add some toasted pine nuts. I browned the rice then added all ingredients to my rice cooker. Oh, I had to use thyme also as I do not have any savory.

Delish! Reminded me of a dish I had in a greek restaurant years ago. I, too, subbed broth for the bouillon and water, and thyme for savory. My two boys, who only like white rice and soy sauce, devoured this!
