  1. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook the onions in the heated oil until clear, but not brown. Add tomatoes, chicken broth, and basil; bring to a boil. Stir in rice and return to a boil. Cover and reduce heat to low. Simmer until the liquid is completely absorbed into the rice, about 20 minutes.

Exactly what I was looking for - something with a little more pizazz than just plain rice, but not something too bold when I already had a rather spicy meat I wanted this to accompany. This had...

Although I like spicy, my husband and son are more bland types, so this recipe was perfect! It's a great way to use up extra tomatoes, and you can always spice it up if you like!

Loved this! Made it with tomatoes from a local farm, served with tenderloin. I think this may be really good as a the rice for a stuffed pepper?? May try that next time. Thumbs up from my pi...

I made this with the basil and garlic chicken recipe for my parents. It was delicious they loved it! At first I thought there were way too many tomatoes but it turned out perfect. Easy, quick an...

Great with my spicy chicken enchiladas, I paired this with a spinach/tomato salad topped with guacamole sauce. Easy and great tasting. A family favorite. Thanks, Magpie

Perfecto! This is very similar to a rice dish that I make regularly. It's delicious! I find that it lends itself to easy and quick variations and is a fabulous side. So easy to adapt to various ...
