  1. Preheat an oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Prepare a 1 quart baking dish with butter.
  2. Melt the butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Fry the onion in the butter until translucent, 3 to 5 minutes. Stir in the rice; cook until the rice is slightly golden. Pour in the chicken broth. Season with the salt. Simmer another 5 minutes. Transfer to the prepared dish.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until the broth is completely absorbed, 35 to 40 minutes. Fluff with a fork to serve.

This was delicious! My oven was full, so I just cooked it on the stove, by covering and simmering for 20-25 mins. I will make this again!

Great basic recipe to modify to your tastes! I paired mine with baked chicken. Instead of using 2 cups of broth only, I used the drippings/marinade from the baked chicken and added broth to eq...

Quick and easy, especially if you use a rice cooker. Simply sautee the onions in butter, add the rice and continue sauteeing until lightly browned. Transfer the rice to the rice cooker and add b...

My husband told me twice how good this rice is. I added a little bit of minced garlic after the onion was done. Instead of baking it, I added the broth then brought it to a boil over medium he...

Yummy pilaf! I made just as written and added some diced carrots. The flavor and moistness of this rice is perfect! Will make again and again.
