I recommend that you use LONG grain rice and increase the liquid to 2 cups. The ratio should be 1 part rice to 2 parts liquid for long grained rice. I also added mixed vegetables (SEE MY PHOTO).

To tell the truth, I cheated by cooking it in the rice cooker. First I dumped the rice in. Next I poured in the chicken broth and onions. I melted the butter in the microwave and mixed it into the rice cooker as well (I melted it so it would get evenly distributed)... Then set to cook. Turned out fine that way.

This is a great base recipe. I used regular rice, added some garlic, finely diced carrot and some fresh mushrooms. I will definately be making this a lot!
