Rice Pilaf


  • 2 cups long grain white rice
  • 1 tbsp. vegetable oil
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 tsp. garlic, minced
  • Chicken stock
  • 2 tsp. of seasoned salt
  • 1/4 tsp. pepper
  • 1/8 tsp. cayenne pepper

Figure out the amount of stock you will need by looking at the rice cooking instructions. Replace the amount of water called for with chicken stock. Heat chicken stock in a small saucepan and set aside.

While the stock is heating, add oil to a large skillet over medium high heat. Add the onion and garlic and cook until onions begin to soften. Add rice to the pan and cook until it begins to brown.

Add the hot stock to the rice mixture. Add salt, pepper and cayenne pepper. Cover, reduce heat and cook according to rice cooking directions, (about 15-25 minutes), until rice is tender.

Fluff with a fork and serve immediately.
