Killer White Rice

This white rice recipe is anything but boring

By Mark Hinds  |  Updated April 27, 2021  |  0 Comments 

One of the biggest complaints about white rice is how boring and bland it can be, which is why so many people only think of it as a filler.

This white rice recipe uses a bay leaf, a little chicken stock, and a couple of other twists to create a killer white rice that has great flavor and texture.

This recipe can be halved if you’re making rice for one or two people or doubled if you’re making rice for a big group.

A few things to serve with this recipe are a Chicken Breast roasted with fresh herbs and Korean BBQ Short Ribs.
