This is such a simple and yummy recipe! I was looking for a rice dish to serve with sausage and peppers and wanted something different than Spanish rice. I just happened to plant basil and parsley in our herb garden this year so this was perfect! Our kids LOVED it! I will definitely make this again! For our family of four 1/2 the recipe was more than enough. Thanks for posting this!!!
This is a wonderful recipe from the Gonzmart family of the famous Columbia Restaurant in Ybor City. The name ''Good Rice'' came about from Sunday family meals. Richard or Casey (not sure which) used to dislike rice as a child... except for his Grandmother's "Good" rice (hence the name). I worked at the Columbia for quite a while... I know all the stories. Personally, I enjoy cooking the rice and then letting it steam for an hour with baked chicken quaters. A bit of a take on traditional Chicken and Yellow Rice. Thanks for posting FloridaGrl!
