My kids love rice.  Specifically this first chicken flavored rice.  It is super easy and pretty basic stuff.

The only secret to rice is the 2:1 ratio.  2 cups of water for 1 cup of rice.  For every cup of rice you’ll need 2 cups of water.  Cooking 2 cups of rice requires 4 cups of water and so on. BUT, often time jasmine rice packaging says otherwise... so, check package cooking instructions!


Jasmine (chicken) Rice

1 cup Jasmine Rice

1 tablespoon olive oil (EVOO)

1 3/4 cups water.

2 tsp of chicken bouillon


Heat olive oil in a sauce pan and lightly brown rice.  Add 2 tbsp of bouillon seasoning. Stir and evenly coat rice in Knorr for an additional minute.  Add water and bring to a boil.  When a boil is reached, reduce heat, cover and simmer on low heat for 22 minutes.  Let sit covered for 5 minutes before serving.

Side note:

You can also make this with butter instead of olive oil (about a half tablespoon per cup of rice).  I grew up with the butter version, but prefer to keep it light these days.
