Herbed Rice

Herbed Rice

We recently got a new rice cooker.  It is a zojirushi rice cooker and it is freaking awesome!  and I wanted to expand our repertoire of rice dishes beyond just white long grain rice.  So I decided to come up with a new recipe that would utilize the rice cooker but impart a ton of flavor.  So I substituted the water for chicken broth and then added herbs and onions to enhance the flavors. This was some of the tastiest rice I have ever made.

Cook the rice

Dice an onion and add it to the pan and cook until tender.

Finally add 1-14.5 oz can of chicken broth to rice bowl.
