Oven Brown Rice
Pretty good. You have to add your own seasonings according to taste. My rice came out fluffy & not dry at all, accurately cooked covered at 350 for 1 hour (appeared to be done in 50 minutes, but I let it cook an additional 6-10 min per required) Was concerned about rice being crunchy, but was not at all. Did not use any beef broth & increased the chicken broth by just a smidge. Used low sodium broth and didn't use any of the salts, but did use a little natural minced garlic in the jar. The butter that was used was unsalted, seasoned with black pepper, just a tad of Lipton onion soup mix and sprinkled with a seasoning called Spike. Served with baked cornish game hens stuffed with veggies. A definite must have!!

Baked Cornish Game Hens
I rate this recipe at least 4 stars. Made this dish today for Sunday's dinner. The hens were well flavored, succulent and tasty! Tweaked the recipe somewhat, included fresh carrots & fresh mushrooms estimated about equal amounts of all veggies. Only did between 1/4-1/3 amount of butter total, which was used for both hens and vegetables. Sprinkled paprika, pepper & a lil parsley with basil on meat. Cooked at 350 covered for one hour and about 45 minutes uncovered (the last 15 min or so turned temp down to 325) meat turned out perfectly browned & juicy, veggies moist with a lil crunch. Served with oven brown rice and lima beans on the side. Almost forgot to mention, used natural minced garlic in the jar and the butter was unsalted. Stuck a few celery & carrot sticks underneath the wings & legs of the birds for extra flavor basting periodically. Absolutely delish!!
