Garlic Rice Pilaf

by Laura

This recipe dish is what I served along side the coconut chicken.  It complemented it well.  The sweet chicken went well with this flavorful and savory rice.  You can also top this rice with some almond sliced for added crunch.  It is ready in under 30 minutes.

Garlic Rice Pilaf

  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 stalk of celery, diced
  • 1 cup long-grain white rice
  • 2 1/2 cups chicken broth
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • black pepper to taste
  • squeeze of lemon juice
  • parsley, optional for garnish
  1. In a large sauce pan, melt butter. Add garlic, celery, and rice.  Cook and stir until slightly brown.
  2. Add chicken broth, salt, and pepper. Bring to a boil over medium heat.
  3. Cover and simmer on low heat until moisture has been absorbed and rice is tender. (This usually takes me about 20 minutes) Add lemon juice just before serving. Toss slightly and garnish with parsley if desired. Serves 4-6.

Recipe adapted from Pennies on a Platter.

Way too much broth or more rice should be added.

You might want to mention in your recipe that the rice needs to come to a boil first before simmering. Novice cooks like myself found out the hard way after the rice sat there on the stove for 20 minutes doing nothing!
