This Family Favorite Rice (a.k.a. Yellow Rice) is a staple around our house. It’s hands down my boy’s favorite rice ever. It goes perfectly with chicken, pork or steak and is my go-to side dish over and over again. It’s crazy delicious!
Does anybody else sometimes struggle with side dishes like I do?
Thank goodness for this Family Favorite Rice . . .it’s been a lifesaver on so many occasions over the years.
If there is one thing my kids would eat on a weekly, no make that a daily basis, it would be this rice. When they find out I’m making yellow rice for dinner, they seriously are ecstatic — it’s like they just won the lottery. I’m not exaggerating about that.This is one of my most favorite recipes I’ve ever gotten from my mother-in-law over the years.
I honestly don’t even know what the “official” name of this rice is, but my boys have officially named it “yellow rice.”
This rice goes so well with anything. We love it with sweet-n-sour chicken, flank steak, meatballs, chicken cordon bleu, ham, pork loin — just to name a few. It is definitely my “go-to” recipe when I need a rice dish. It’s so simple to throw together and is seriously delicious!
- 4 chicken bouillon cubes
- 1/2 cup butter
- 2 envelopes Lipton Noodle soup mix
- 5 cups water
- 2 cups long grain rice
Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.
In a large skillet or fry pan place bouillon cubes, butter, dry soup mix and water. Bring to a boil and stir until bouillon has dissolved.
Pour into a 9x13 glass dish. Stir in the rice. Cover with foil and bake for 30 min. After you take it out of the oven, remove the foil and stir well. Enjoy!!
