“This is a delicious twist to traditional rice.” - by serenamoon
Original recipe yields 4 servings
- Melt the butter in a lidded skillet over medium-low heat. Cook and stir orzo pasta until golden brown. Stir in onion and cook until onion becomes translucent, then add garlic and cook for 1 minute. Mix in the rice and chicken broth. Increase heat to high and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until the rice is tender, and the liquid has been absorbed, 20 to 25 minutes. Remove from heat and let stand for 5 minutes, then fluff with a fork.

"Outstanding recipe! Certainly proof that "the whole is greater than the sum of its parts." Served plain with roast chicken, turned the leftovers into fried rice the next day. Used organic chicken b..." See moreroth and brown basmati rice. To reduce cooking time for basmati rice, soak it in warm water to cover for 20 minutes, then drain & add to the pot."
