|Perfect Rice Pilaf|
I used some homemade chicken stock along with a can of reduced sodium chicken broth, and it was perfectly seasoned. Very flavorful and very satisfying. The perfect side to a grilled chicken kabob dinner.

- 3 tablespoons butter
- 1/2 cup orzo pasta
- 3/4 cup diced onion
- 3 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 cup uncooked long grain white rice
- 3 cups chicken stock/broth
In a skillet over medium heat, melt the butter, add the orzo pasta. Stir and cook until pasta is golden brown. Stir in onion, and cook until onion is translucent. Stir in garlic and cook for about 1 minute. Mix in the rice and chicken stock/broth. Increase heat to medium-high and bring to a boil. Cover and reduce heat to low.
Simmer on low for about 20-25 minutes, or until liquid is absorbed and rice is tender.
Turn heat off and allow to stand for about 5 minutes. Stir or fluff with a fork before serving.
Serves about 6
