This is a very tasty dish that even my kids love! It can easily be cut in half. It uses soy sauce and chow mein noodles to give it an Asian flair.

I've modified this recipe so much it barely resembles the original! I'm rating it 4 stars regardless, because it gave me a starting point to what is now one of my family's favorite dinners........... A few things I do is double (or more) the rice, add a can of cream of mushroom, a package of pea pods, 1/2 package of mix veggies, sliced water chestnuts, mushrooms, minced garlic, and celery seed instead of fresh. For the almonds I use Almond Accents (original). They're paper thin and pre-salted. These are a necessity in our opinion. We also serve our noodles on the side so they don't get mushy and everyone can add to their own personal taste. I use rice noodles. The ones that look just like chow mein noodles, but a tad thinner. We prefer these and they only cost a few cents more.

I am giving this 5 stars because, even though I didn't follow it exactly, it inspired me to create a recipe that my family LOVED. My husband has always loved hamburger helper's Rice Oriental so I browned the hamburger with onion powder and garlic salt (my 3 year old recoils at anything with chunks of onion) then added the rice, water, almonds and soy sauce. I am not a huge fan of condensed cream soups so I just made a quick gravy/sauce by combining about two tsp of corn starch and water. The flavor was JUST like hamburger helper and the almonds were a wonderful touch. Much, much healthier and cheaper. I will definitely be making this again!!!

I didn't follow this recipe too closely, but it was a easy to prepare meal. I used cream of mushroom rather than cream of chicken soup. Didn't have celery or almonds. I really think the extra crunch would have been nice, it was a little mushy and didn't have much texture without. If I make again I will probably follow the recipe more closely.
