Recipe by Arizona Desert Flower
"Rice infused with garlic and onion baked in chicken stock. A wonderfully simple dish even picky eaters will enjoy. I use homemade stock as it's the most flavorful, but use whatever you have on hand. Another option is adding whatever leftover veggies or meat I have to make a simple casserole without a heavy cream sauce. This recipe uses a
rice-to-liquid ratio of 2:1 for long-grain rice."

Really good recipe. I made it in quantity for a charity. One hint: for whatever reason, we are never told to wash rice first in the US. Every culture that eats rice as a staple washes it first in cool water until the water runs clear. It makes a huge difference in the finished product.
This was okay. I used a 2-quart casserole, leaving it covered the entire time, and the rice was a little dry for our taste. This is a nice basic dish; next time I'll use a smaller casserole and add a tiny bit more fluid and adjust the flavors a bit, depending on what else I am serving. A nice way to use the oven for a side dish if you're already baking.
I made this using medium grain rice and it was absolutely perfect. Flavor is great. I omitted the celery and carrots since I didn't have any in the fridge and it was a perfect side to lemon chicken.
Tasty family pleaser. I prefer a little more spice, but husband and very picky rice hating daughter asked for seconds :) We had this as a lighter alternative to fried rice with chicken teriyaki skewers. Can easily be adapted to suit any taste (I always stay true to recipes as written the first time around)and has a much better chicken flavor than when boiled in broth.
I confess I was lazy and was looking for an easy side dish so I could cook all the dishes in the oven at once and forget about it. I followed this recipe exactly, including using my homemade chicken broth which exceeds anything store bought. This was perfect. I did have to increase the oven time, but I have a slow oven. It had the right amount of flavor without overpowering the main dish. We loved it.
My guys really liked this super simple baked rice. I liked the ease of the recipe. You could add whatever vegetables your family enjoys to this dish.
I appreciated that I was able to utilize the other half of the oven while I baked chicken but this was just "alright". The only change I made, by necessity, was to use brown rice, because that's all I had in the pantry, but I don't think that white rice would have made this dish any better. I found this bland. Not awful--I might very well make it again to go with an exceptionally flavorful main course to avoid a clash--but it didn't stand out either.
I ALWAYS have carrots on hand but on the particular day I made this I found my crisper void of carrots and it was already too late to run to the store. I managed to round up half of an orange bell and had to use it in place of carrot. Simple is right and this pairs nicely with most any meat. I served this with cornish hens I smoked in the smoker and then turned around and served it with ham from the smoker the very next day and it worked great with both. This will be my go to recipe when I am needing a side dish for my meat. Thanks for sharing Arizona Desert Flower!
