Savory Rice


Back in th 1970’s I went to work for the Gas Company. I was a teller at the time and once a month the company printed off a free recipe that we passed out to our customers. This Savory Rice recipe was one of those recipes that I adapted to my own taste. It is absolutely fantastic and easy to make even for beginner cooks!




Melt the butter in a medium pan over medium heat.


Add chopped onions, garlic and rice.

Mix and cook over medium heat until lightly brown, stirring constantly.


Add chicken broth and seasonings. Bring to a boil stirring occasionally.

Pour into a 2 quart casserole dish with a lid.


Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 50-55 minutes until the liquid is absorbed but not dry. I baked this 50 minutes.


Stir before serving.
