Chicken Rice Simple Side Dish

SERVES 6-8  |  ACTIVE TIME 5 Min  |  TOTAL TIME 25 Min

1 cup Jasmine rice
1 tablespoon unsalted butter
1 tablespoon low sodium chicken base
1 tablespoon dried parsley flakes
1 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
salt to taste

Bring 2 cups water to a boil, in a medium saucepan, over medium-high heat. Add rice, butter and chicken base. Stir. Reduce to simmer. Cook 15 minutes, or until rice has absorbed the liquid.

Remove from heat. Let stand 5 minutes. Pour parsley into your hand and crumble it into the pot, add pepper. Stir and fluff with fork.  Add salt to taste. I use 1/2 teaspoon - 1 teaspoon salt.

Serve and enjoy.

COOK'S NOTES: You can substitute chicken stock in place of the chicken base and water.
