3 strips thick-cut bacon, chopped

1 1/2 cups long-grain white rice 

1/2 teaspoon ground coriander 

1 pinch ground cumin 

1 cup chicken broth

2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro  

2 tablespoons chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley 

Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper 


  1. Cook the bacon in a medium saucepan over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until almost crisp, about 10 minutes. Add the rice, coriander and cumin and cook, stirring, until the rice is coated and light golden, 1 to 2 minutes. Add the chicken broth and 1 cup water. Increase the heat to medium-high and bring to a boil. Cover the saucepan with a tight-fitting lid and reduce the heat to low; cook for 16 minutes, then let stand, covered, for 5 minutes. Fluff the rice with a fork and stir in the cilantro, parsley and salt and pepper to taste.
