  • About This Recipe

    “Simple rice side-dish that has a wonderful onion flavor. This recipe produces a creamy rice that goes well with chicken or pork. My grandmother (my Bubba) used to make this all the time when I was a kid, and it is still one of my favorites, yet oh, so simple. Cook time includes time to cook the rice.”

  • Reviews

  • “I quite enjoyed the flavor of this dish, it went well with the fried chicken I made last night. I added 2 cloves of garlic and it wasn’t overpowering at all. Plus, I sprinkled in a bit of parmesean cheese right before I served it. Very tasty. Thanks for the post.”

  • “This is a great tasting recipe and so easy to make. I made it last night to go with my baked chicken. A nice change from spuds. My husband thought it had a little too much onion, so I’ll just cut back a little the next time I make it.”

  • “Note from Manda: Made this yesterday, and added a clove (or two;) of minced garlic while sauteing the onion. It was wonderful!! However, it does change the flavor of the rice quite a bit, so if you are not a die-hard garlic-head (like me:), I recommend following the original recipe first. Just a FYI:)~Manda”

  • “This was a really tasty side for dinner.It was a warm, comfort type rice.I loved it.I will make it often and keep for lunches.Just wonderful.Thanks for sharing.”

  • “It was good.DH loved it and he doesn’t like rice dishes.I will make this again.”

  • “I don’t know why other reviewers didn’t have this turn out well.I thought it was fantastic.I didn’t have an overwhelming butter problem either.The only change I did make was used Minced instant onion, because I accidentally burned my shallot I had planned on using!”

  • “I was looking for a rice recipe today that would be quick to make tonight.I found that I really liked this.I did add a clove of garlic to the onions, and instead of using water to thicken it, I used some additional chicken broth I had.Thanks for sharing!”

  • “I found this dish to be a little on the greasy side…maybe because of all the butter that is used to saute the onion?Not sure.Overall flavor was OK, but not something I would make again.”

  • “A nice and creamy, tasty side dish!The only change I made was omiting the fresh chopped onion and using about 1 tablespoon of dried onion flakes instead.I did this to “hide” the onions from DSS, but it still had a wonderful flavor.It reminded me or Risotto.I will definitely be making this easy side dish again.Thanks Manda!”

  • “Hubby loved this rice.I did make a few alterations, though.I cooked the rice with 1/2 chicken broth and 1/2 water.I also subbed chicken broth for the water and bouillon cube.In addition, I stirred roasted garlic in with the salt and pepper.Getting Hubby’s approval was a major accomplishment.He really doesn’t care for rice.I served this with baked fish and brussel sprouts.Yum!”

  • “This rice has a nice onion taste and I liked the creamy texture.I will probably add some garlic next time, like other reviewers suggested.Thanks!”

  • “Very nice side dish, thank you. I had it with fish, but agree with the other reviews that it would be really good with chicken. Nice, quick side dish.”
