This is a staple of Armenian homes and is always a favorite with everyone. Very easy to prepare and delicious with any meal, especially poultry. I serve this rice with breaded, baked chicken quarters.

Directions

  1. Melt butter in large saucepan over medium-high heat. Add the egg noodles and stir until they begin to brown, being careful not to burn the butter. Stir in the rice. Continue stirring until rice is coated with butter.
  2. Pour in the chicken broth and add the bouillon cubes. Bring to a boil; reduce heat to low and cover tightly. Cook without uncovering pot until all the liquid has been absorbed, about 20 minutes.

I used to do catering for an Armenian friend of mine, and all we wanted was the FOOD - forget money. THIS is the closest thing I have found YET that even comes close to hers. DO NOT add a "pinch" of anything - this is the way it is SUPPOSED to taste. YUM. Even my super picky never eats rice daughter asked for THIRDS!

Very popular family recipe. We Love it here! Whenever we have baked chicken we make this. Great with warmed sweet corn.

This would probably be 6 stars as written...I am trying to cut sodium and fat so I used low sodium chicken base and only one Tbsp of butter for 2 servings. Also, the serving size it quite large. We had plenty left over.
