  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Spray an 8-inch square baking dish with cooking spray.
  2. Bring chicken broth to a boil in a saucepan.
  3. Pour rice mix into the prepared baking dish. Carefully pour boiling chicken broth over the rice. Cover the dish with aluminum foil.
  4. Bake in preheated oven until rice is tender, about 1 hour.
  5. Melt butter in a skillet over medium heat. Cook and stir almonds in hot butter until they start to color, 3 to 5 minutes. Sprinkle parsley over the almonds; continue to cook and stir until the almonds are lightly browned, another 3 to 5 minutes.
  6. Mix the baked rice, the almond mixture, cranberries, salt, and pepper in a large bowl; toss to serve.

A rice cooker works best for me (including the keep warm setting), takes less time and is reliable cooked rice. Otherwise, an awesome side.

I did not have crasins so I used golden raisins instead. I used all wild rice, I also prepared the rice on the stove top and then tossed everything in after for a faster cook time. The flavors a...

I left out the cranberries (personal preference) but this was the perfect side dish for salmon... Yum! I've made it a few times now and I love it. No guess work involved, just perfect rice eve...

Loved it! Worth the time and effort. I used all wild rice too. Will try it with the mixed next time. Great change from plain rice.
