Why I Love This Recipe

This rice dish is an elegant and delicious side dish. There are several steps to this recipe, but for a special meal, it's worth the extra effort.

Ingredients You'll Need

2 cups water
2 tsp salt
1 cup long grain rice

1/3 cup butter
dash garlic salt
1 can chicken broth, 14 oz. or 2 chicken bouillon cubes dissolved in 1 3/4 cup water
1 Tbsp dried parsley

1/2 cup slivered almonds, toasted


Bring 2 cups of water and 2 tsp salt to boil; pour over the rice in a medium bowl. Let stand for 30 minutes.

Drain water from rice. Rinse rice with cold water; drain well.

Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.

Melt the butter in a skillet.

Add rice and cook over medium heat, stirring frequently until butter is almost absorbed, about 5 minutes.

Turn into a buttered 1 quart casserole; sprinkle with a dash of garlic salt.

Pour the can of broth (or dissolved bouillon) over the rice.

Bake, covered, for 45 minutes. Remove from oven.

Add parsley flakes. Fluff rice with a fork.

Sprinkle the toasted almonds over the rice.

Bake, uncovered, for an additional 10 minutes.
