This was great! I substituted garlic powder for onion powder (since I was out) and didn't add extra salt, as there's enough in the chicken broth. Definitely better than cooking on the stovetop. The only thing I'll change is to reduce the cooking time to 45 minutes next time, just because of the brand of brown rice I buy. Even then, it wasn't overly dry after an hour.


Great way to make brown rice. I will increase the cayenne next time.


Liked this but made some very minor changes! Used 2 c water and 3.5 c broth. (Since the package directions called for 5 cups water I felt that 3 was too little water.) Recommend reducing salt and pepper to 1/2 t. each. Baked 1 hour exactly and it was great texture! Will make this my new brown rice method!
