I used to do catering for an Armenian friend of mine, and all we wanted was the FOOD - forget money. THIS is the closest thing I have found YET that even comes close to hers. DO NOT add a "pinch" of anything - this is the way it is SUPPOSED to taste. YUM. Even my super picky never eats rice daughter asked for THIRDS!
Quiet and understated, just what I wanted to serve alongside a fish entree. I used orzo rather than fine noodles and added fresh chopped parsley at the end. Scaling this down to one serving, and then making half of THAT, served the two of us quite sufficiently.
Very popular family recipe. We Love it here! Whenever we have baked chicken we make this. Great with warmed sweet corn.
This would probably be 6 stars as written...I am trying to cut sodium and fat so I used low sodium chicken base and only one Tbsp of butter for 2 servings. Also, the serving size it quite large. We had plenty left over.
I used chicken bouillon powder (about two tablespoons) and water instead of the cubes and broth. This was very good, but you should know that it makes a TON. I'd say it's enough for at least fifteen people. The taste is excellent.
Quick and easy. I sauteed the rice in the Butter, then added the noodles--as they browed quickly. I also heated the water (in microwave while sauteing the rice) and added it hot. Cuts down on time.
I didn’t know what to do with the half a bag of fine egg noodles I had sitting in my cupboard, typed "fine egg noodles into the ingredients search and this was the first thing that came up so I though I would give it a shot since I had all the ingredients on had and it came out Delicious! I cut the serving size down to two since I made this as a side dish for me and my fiancé, and man was there a lot! future hubby thought it was FANTASTIC and asked me if it was easy to make (I’m sure I will be getting request for "that rice noodle stuff you made that one time" pretty often!) Thanks for the great recipe!!!!
We loved this. I made it for a family reunion (my husband's family) picnic. I wanted something that would hold up in the Utah summer heat. The was a little worried that it would be too bland, so before I cooked the rice, I added some garlic salt and italian seasonings. The seasonings by no means overpowered it. They were very subtle. Cooking this in the chicken broth/bouillon is very important -- as you could tell by the aroma in my house when it was cooking.
