Easy Rice

A really easy side dish that I served with the roasted chicken from the last post. Most of the ingredients we keep on hand, so I can whip this up without a fuss.

Easy Rice

1 cup uncooked long grain rice
1 3/4 cup unsalted chicken broth
1 can Rotel, undrained (Hot version, if you like the heat)
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 tbls. vegetable oil
1 tsp. oregano
3/4 onion, diced
cilantro or parsley for a garnish
*optional: pinch of turmeric

In a large pot over medium heat, add the oil and let in heat up. Add the diced onions, uncooked rice and garlic. Stir constantly for about 5-7 minutes or until the onions are softened and the rice is very lightly browned. Add the remaining ingredients (besides the garnish), bring to a boil, cover and reduce heat to simmer for about the 20-25 minutes. Check/stir a few times to make sure it's not sticking to the bottom. Add turmeric close to the end of cooking time. Fluff the rice before serving and add garnish.

Notes: Makes plenty and reheats well. Super easy side dish and went great with the roasted chicken! Enjoy!
