"This is a very easy and quick recipe. There are additional variations to enhance your rice experience. To add some kick to it, add a can of mixed veggies and decrease the chicken stock from 4 cups to 3 3/4 cups. Or you can add a can of beans to it. If you add beans, do not decrease the chicken stock. You can also add meat, sausage, ham, or even shrimp. If adding meat, no need to decrease chicken stock."

We followed the recipe and it was salty! Perhaps 1-2 teaspoons are enough. Thanks!


Because I have a small rice cooker, I halved the recipe. The salt amount seemed like WAY too much, and after reading the other review stating it was salty, I chose to only use one third the amount of salt (so for a half batch, I used 1 tsp instead of 1 tbsp). Am I ever glad I cut back! The seasonings were perfect, so I can't even imagine how salty it would be with the full amount. With the reduced salt, I really liked the overall flavor. It was a nice change of pace. The rice did come out a little mushy (even though I rinsed it first), so it would be a good idea to use a bit less liquid than called for.
