Cooking Rice With Chicken Broth
Rice is a yummy gluten-free ingredient that tastes wonderful by itself, or it can be transformed into so many different dishes, by different cultures.
Most rice recipes suggest you boil the rice in water, and then from there the possibilities are endless. You can crack and cook an egg, add some butter and liquid aminos, and saute the cooked rice for a quick and easy fried rice. You can add butter and maple syrup to cooked rice for a sweet treat. You can also simply cook it in water, add in a shake or two of salt and pepper, and enjoy its simplistic flavors.
But, if you happen to love salty, bold, and vibrant flavors, I have a little secret to share with you. Instead of boiling your rice in water, try cooking rice with chicken broth.
While I do recommend boiling your rice in homemade chicken broth, since it is more flavorful, healthy and has amazing healing properties… you can also use a good store bought version for this recipe. Some grocery stores actually make homemade chicken broth, so you may check out to see if your store does, if you don’t want to make your own.
Cooking rice with chicken broth is incredibly simple.
Step 1: Cook rice according to package directions, with one exception. Instead of cooking it in water, use chicken broth.
There is no step 2. See, easy peasy! You can increase the flavor of your dish, exponentially, just by cooking rice with chicken broth, instead of water. The chicken broth will leave your rice moist, salty, and for such a simple substitution, your friends and family will be wondering how you made such tasty rice!
