"This is a quick and easy family favorite that is asked for at home and at potlucks and parties. What makes this recipe so good is the endless ways that you can season it. It's also easily converted for a very large amount. I have made it for as little as my husband and I all the way to a group of 80 for my son's engagement party. Use Greek, Old Bay®, seasoned salt, garlic powder - endless possibilities."

  1. Dissolve chicken bouillon in water in a bowl.
  2. Melt butter in a skillet over medium-high heat. Cook and stir vermicelli pieces until golden brown, about 5 minutes.
  3. Pour bouillon mixture into the skillet with the vermicelli.
  4. Stir rice, black pepper, salt, and Greek seasoning into the vermicelli mixture and bring to a boil. Cover and reduce heat to low; simmer until rice is tender and liquid is absorbed, 20 to 25 minutes.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Notes:
  • This recipe also works well using instant rice. Follow the recipe exactly, only use the amount of water and rice called for on the instant rice box. Just allow it to sit a bit longer than called so that the vermicelli has time to soften.
  • This also works well using beef broth or bullion.
  • If you prefer a moister rice, add a bit more of water. If you like a drier rice, put a little less water.

Not too bland, not too bold, just right - and for my turkey dinner tonight that means it was perfect. Hubs and I both appreciated its simplicity. I used orzo for the broken vermicelli and chic...

What an absolutely delicious side dish for either chicken or pork. The store didn't have either vermicelli or greek seasoning. I used the greek seasoning recipe from the AR site (it was great)...

A great base recipe. I like to add my own twist and this recipe certainly allowed for that. Will be using this recipe again.

We enjoyed this recipe very much. I didn't have Greek seasoning so I used Old Bay since I was serving shrimp also. I also used brown rice instead of white which, of course, increased the cookin...

I've tried so many rice pilaf recipes but they never seem to have the great flavor I'm looking for. This one intrigued me since it had the chicken bouillon, so I gave it a try. My only change wa...

We loved this recipe. I was serving baked cod and wanted a rice side dish to accompany it. This was perfect. I also wanted to have peas as a side dish, so threw the frozen peas into the pilaf...

I like the flexibility with this recipe. It beats buying it in a box! My local grocer only had Orzo, which I actually prefer. I keep Knor bouillon cubes in my pantry at all times. It is more ...

This was soo good. I took the leftover rice and ate it as a meal the next day at work. Its that good.

Amazingly simple and amazingly fantastic! Thank you!
