awesome finally i mastered white rice! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This recipe is great. It is very easy and the flavor from the chicken broth is really nice. I agree that need to watch the final 20 minutes and I also stopped cooked the rice at around 17 minutes. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Very easy, the bottom got a little crunchy and dark though. Next time I will cook a few minutes less. item not reviewed by moderator and published
