  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  2. Toast rice and butter in a saucepan over medium-high heat, stirring frequently, until rice gives off a nutty fragrance, about 5 minutes. Transfer rice to a Dutch oven or lidded casserole dish.
  3. Bring chicken broth, olive oil, salt, black pepper, onion powder, and cayenne pepper to a boil in the same saucepan; pour over rice and stir to combine.
  4. Cover and bake in preheated oven for 1 hour and 15 minutes.

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...

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 an...

This was very flavorful and easy to make -- an average recipe that can be "doctored" up in lots of ways. I liked having the extra burner available on the stove to prepare the rest of the meal wh...

Reduced the salt to about 1/4 tsp (due to the sodium content of the chicken broth.) I was out of cayenne pepper so used a pinch of paprika instead. Only needed about 45 min to bake. Just turned ...

Good and easy, I did add extra water at about 35 minutes and it was finished at 50 minutes. I guess it depends on the brand of rice and the oven, I'm glad I checked on it early. Makes a ton so i...

Rice came out really good. I did add cilantro and a can of seasoned tomato and I'm glad I did. It came out so flavorful!
