My family has dubbed this my "church" rice since my congregation asks me to make it for all church occassions. This tastes wonderful beside a moist baked chicken with gravy covered over both, (don't forget the greens!) I also highly suggest that you have a food chopper or processor for this one--but it's okay to hand chop. This one is a staple for our Sunday dinners, but please be aware I have a very large family. Please reduce recipe by half if serving for 4 or less.
