  • Ready In

  1. Heat the broth in a 2-quart saucepan over medium-high heat to a boil.
  2. Stir in the rice. Reduce the heat to low. Cover the saucepan and cook for 20 minutes or until the rice is tender and most of the liquid is absorbed.


  • TIPS
  • Easy Substitution Tip: Substitute Swanson(R) Beef or Vegetable or Seasoned Broths for the Chicken Broth.
  • Florentine Simmered Rice: Add 1 teaspoon dried Italian seasoning to broth. Add 1 cup chopped spinach with rice. Stir in 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese before serving. Serve with additional cheese.

All you need to do to make this five star is add one to two Tablespoons dried Parsley. Then - yummy!

This is great for rice. I use broth now when ever I make rice.

Simple and easy.

I added 1.5 tablespoons of frozen peas and corn. Recipe was simple but tasty. I will for now use chicken broth to cook my rice. Enjoy!
