Homemade Chicken Rice a Roni
Rice a Roni is a favorite at our house. Since I’ve started buying less boxed and processed foods, we don’t eat it very often anymore. I’ve seen various recipes for this online, so I had to try and make my own. It turned out delicious and so very easy to make! I served it with Brown Sugar Glazed Carrots and some Organic Chicken Portobello Brats for a tasty meal!
What you need:
1 1/2 tbsp. butter
1 c. instant white rice
1/2 c. fine egg noodles (usually found in the spanish foods aisle)
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 c. onion, finely diced
2 1/2 c. chicken broth (I used water and bouillon cubes)
1 tsp dried parsley
salt and pepper
Melt butter in a large saute pan. Add rice, noodles, garlic and onion. Saute over medium high heat until rice starts browning, about 5 minutes. Add chicken broth, parsley, salt and pepper. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to medium low and cook covered until rice is cooked through about 10 minutes. Enjoy!!
