    I found this recipe today while looking for a "side" rice dish to serve with my chicken main course. I used regular white long grain rice, just a smidgeon of lemon rind and mixed dried herbs of parsley and basil. I only baked it for 30 minutes as it appeared to be done and I didnt want the rice to dry out. Dinner was delayed so I drizzled some garlic butter mixed with parsley flakes over the rice. Perfect! thanks for posting. " of ri

    We really loved this one!!! I increased the garlic to 8 cloves and used parsley and basil as my herbs. Only had to bake this for 25 minutes and it was sheer perfection. The flavor was so incredible. The lemon zest is what really made it, in my mind. Will DEFINITELY make this again! Thank you for posting!

    A very nice rice dish. I used a long grain and wild rice mix b/c it is what I had on hand- and used only fresh basil for the herbs, for the same reason. It was moist, flavorful and fresh tasting. The addition of lemon zest really added a nice zip to the dish. Thanks so much for sharing! We will make this again and again!

    I took Sackville's recommendation to heart and doubled the garlic. The lemon rind provides refreshing flavor to this great side dish. I cooked this in a skillet on the stove top.

    This a wonderful dish. I love the lemon/herb flavor. I did omit the oil and used Jasmine rice since it was what I had on hand. Since I usually cook for only 2, I had some left overs and feed them to my freezer. In entree containers with the baked chicken breasts and lemon green beans #24727 it reheated perfectly in the microwave! This is going to be a staple for me.


I work part time for a midwifery clinic and am mommy to three very busy and very hungry boys (ages 1, 9 and 10). My husband plays bass and sings in a christian band called Broken Walls ( ) so he is on the road alot and i am left to figure out something nutritious, fast and easy for the three of us when he is gone. My husband is an amazing cook and it comes so easy for him- which is a blessing and much appreciated after a day of work! I love recipezaar because it gives me ideas I just would never come up with on my own, and I really appreciate the enthusiasm and helpfulness of the other "chefs". I have been given some very good tips and advice.
