Thank you for reviewing this recipe.



This is a good side dish, I wish they can let us choose the serving size. Instead the chicken bullion cube we used velveta.

Nice as a side

While its own flavor was a little weak, this rice worked well as a compliment. Thankfully, it wasn't nearly as sweet as I was afraid it would be. Plus, it was easy and different.
