Ingredients

  • 2 cups long grain white rice
  • 1-1/2 cups chicken stock
  • 1-1/2 cups water
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 2 tsp butter
  • 1 tsp salt

Instructions

  1. Add the chicken stock, water, bay leaf, butter, and salt to a medium saucepan. Turn the heat on high and add the rice.
  2. Once the liquid comes to a boil, give everything a good stir, cover with a tight-fitting lid, and turn the heat down to a low simmer.
  3. Let the rice cook for 15 minutes. Once the rice has finished cooking, take it off the heat and let it rest for 5 to 10 minutes, before removing the cover and giving it a good stir and fluffing it with a fork.
