This tastes far better than that box mix by the same name. I used chicken broth and served with lemon garlic chicken. I just love dried apricots with chicken and know that this was going to be a hit when I first read it. It couldn't be much easier and the wonderful fragrance from the pot fills the kitchen and makes you wish you could bottle it. Thanks so much Cookgirl. :D

Delicious rice!!! I loved the sweetness of the apricots in this. I made ours gluten free by using crushed up penne rice pasta. I used unsalted butter, cooking onion, canned & fresh tomato, homemade chicken stock, slivered almonds, washed yellow raisins, sea salt, and the rest! I served this with Greek Lemon Chicken Kabobs With Mint Marinade, Fresh Yogurt Sauce for Grilled Meat or Fish, no dill & a version of Spinach Salad With Feta Cheese for a very tasty meal. I would definitely make this again. Made for NA*ME Tag! Come play!!

I just needed a quick rice dish to go with my meal & randomly chose this. And glad I did!! It was better than my main! This had lots of flavour & we liked the mint. I also used homemade chicken stock, yellow onion, but I didn't have any nuts or dried fruit on hand. Didn't matter though - very good! THanks!

Delicious complement to a grilled fish entree. In the either/or categories, I used orzo, leeks, pistachios, homemade chicken broth. I DID use butter (which I did NOT burn). I and everyone else DID enjoy it--the textures are great and it's a very aromatic dish. Thanks, CG!
