Recipe by Arizona Desert Flower
"Rice infused with garlic and onion baked in chicken stock. A wonderfully simple dish even picky eaters will enjoy. I use homemade stock as it's the most flavorful, but use whatever you have on hand. Another option is adding whatever leftover veggies or meat I have to make a simple casserole without a heavy cream sauce. This recipe uses a
rice-to-liquid ratio of 2:1 for long-grain rice."

I made this using medium grain rice and it was absolutely perfect. Flavor is great. I omitted the celery and carrots since I didn't have any in the fridge and it was a perfect side to lemon chicken.
This was okay. I used a 2-quart casserole, leaving it covered the entire time, and the rice was a little dry for our taste. This is a nice basic dish; next time I'll use a smaller casserole and add a tiny bit more fluid and adjust the flavors a bit, depending on what else I am serving. A nice way to use the oven for a side dish if you're already baking.
Really good recipe. I made it in quantity for a charity. One hint: for whatever reason, we are never told to wash rice first in the US. Every culture that eats rice as a staple washes it first in cool water until the water runs clear. It makes a huge difference in the finished product.
Tasty family pleaser. I prefer a little more spice, but husband and very picky rice hating daughter asked for seconds :) We had this as a lighter alternative to fried rice with chicken teriyaki skewers. Can easily be adapted to suit any taste (I always stay true to recipes as written the first time around)and has a much better chicken flavor than when boiled in broth.
My guys really liked this super simple baked rice. I liked the ease of the recipe. You could add whatever vegetables your family enjoys to this dish.
I halfed it for 2 people and skipped the celery. I used some preshredded carrots and it is worth making again.
I appreciated that I was able to utilize the other half of the oven while I baked chicken but this was just "alright". The only change I made, by necessity, was to use brown rice, because that's all I had in the pantry, but I don't think that white rice would have made this dish any better. I found this bland. Not awful--I might very well make it again to go with an exceptionally flavorful main course to avoid a clash--but it didn't stand out either.
