I agree with LadyRed, this does taste a lot like a Rice-a-Roni side dish. I loved it and wanted more. I used just a little oil rather than the butter and homemade broth (no water). And I used brown basmati, increasing the cooking time to 40 minutes. Delicious.

Oh my! What a rich and hearty side! Very stick-to-your-ribs and flavorful! I changed a few things such as replacing the basmati rice with long grain rice, butter in place of the margarine, and chicken broth instead of consomme. Just happened to have all that stuff on hand. We had this along side your Chicken and Cabbage Saute Chicken and Cabbage Saute and it was fabulous! Thank you for sharing. I know I'll make this often!
