No more boring rice to accompany your main dish! This is one of the most flavorful ways to make rice! The best part – it’s super simple to make!
I love rice! Well, correction. I love FLAVORFUL rice. No bland rice here. This garlic butter rice is an easy side dish, or it could easily be apart of your main dish – with some chicken and sausage, in a burrito bowl, or under some crockpot chicken! And I’ll bet that you have most, if not all, ingredients on hand!
Before my husband and I got married, he used to buy those microwavable rice packs that were all different flavors. I was highly skeptical of them – but one day gave them a try. I tried the garlic-butter flavored rice and loved the flavors! I thought that I needed to give it to a go and learn how to make a homemade version of this. Well after making this rice, I’ve never looked back! No more flavored microwave rice packets for this girl!
I make this rice all the time! It’s just such a flavorful way of making rice. As I have said before, I always use Jasmine rice. It always comes out perfectly for me. You can use whatever rice you would like! If you do use a different type of rice, you may have to have vary your liquid amount. Just look at the back of the package to determine how much liquid you need. For the liquid – I always use chicken stock. It really helps to give the rice a depth of flavor.
You can do so much with this rice. These flavors go with just about any dish! I hope you enjoy!
