    Mmmm...Delicious and fresh. The perfect amount of lemon flavor. I added a 1/4 t. of poultry seasoning and used a 1/2 t. less salt. I think next time I'll try cooking it in a skillet instead of a sauce pan, I think it would make it easier to stir in the lemon. Thanks for sharing the recipe.

    This is a very nice way to jazz up white rice, and simple to do. I made mine with chicken broth instead of water and skipped the cayenne, but it was still very tasty. Thanks, Bev.

    Can't say I really liked this recipe. The cayenne, the bay leaf, and the lemon all have very powerful flavors, and they didn't seem to blend very well.

    Loved it! Went wonderfully with the salmon I made last night. Now on the rotation in my house as one of our favorites. Thanks Bev!
