I followed the recipe exactly and I liked that this recipe added the rice and chicken broth all at the same time therefore cutting down on the time to make. Served this with Recipe#193864. Perfect compliment. Made for ZWT4.

- 1⁄2 cup onion, finely chopped
- 1 tablespoon garlic, crushed
- 3 tablespoons olive oil
