Directions

  1. Preheat an oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Prepare a 1 quart baking dish with butter.
  2. Melt the butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Fry the onion in the butter until translucent, 3 to 5 minutes. Stir in the rice; cook until the rice is slightly golden. Pour in the chicken broth. Season with the salt. Simmer another 5 minutes. Transfer to the prepared dish.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until the broth is completely absorbed, 35 to 40 minutes. Fluff with a fork to serve.

This was delicious! My oven was full, so I just cooked it on the stove, by covering and simmering for 20-25 mins. I will make this again!

This was one of the easiest and best recipes I've tried. It came out with a nice, slightly caramelized flavor and wasn't sticky. A definite time saver when you don't want a complicated pilaf.

This recipe looks identical to a Craig Claiborne recipe my family has relied on for years. It reliably makes a moist and flavorful pilaf. You can brown some chicken tenders and lay them on top halfway thru baking for a nice combo meal.
