uncooked white rice
I use canned chicken broth in place of the water & Bouillon cubes. A little butter, salt & pepper after its done. Add any cooked vegetables or Rotel tomatoes and you have a great and easy side dish.
I've been making rice like this for over 30 years. However, I've found that the amount of bouillon cubes, or teaspoons of dry or paste bouillon should equal the total amount of ingredients. Therefore, for 4 cups of water and 2 cups of rice, you would add 6 portions of chicken flavoring. I also use beef, pork and fish bouillon depending on what I'm serving it with.
I do something similar to this recipe. I use 1 chicken boullion cube per cup of water and add about 1/2 to 1 tsp or oregano or basil to the water as well. My rice always comes out a little creamier and more flavorful than plain rice... Hope this helps!
I cut this recipe in half and used about 3 bouillon cubes (I used granules and didn't measure). The rice came out wonderful.
I make this all the time, although I use 1 boullion cube per cup of water, salt and pepper. Turns out great everytime!
I added salt and butter to mine. Actually, this is pretty close to the way I make rice (adding salt and butter really helps!), and I also like to add some frozen veggies to it, makes for a nice time-saver sidedish.
We love this simple rice! It doesnt get any easier or cheaper!
This is the recipe my husband taught me when he showed me how to make rice. The only problem with the bullion cubes is that one half of a cube (1500 mg) is the amount of salt you should have in one day. If you can buy low sodium premade chicken broth do so. If not use one cube. I love salt but my high blood pressure doesnt :)! Butter is good to add to but absolutley not necessary expecially if you are looking out for your health. If it is still too bland for you add some herbs or spice (Red peeeper, cayanne). I hope this helps whoever is trying to stay healthy out there!
