Homemade Chicken Rice-A-Roni (Rice Pilaf)
In a large skillet on medium heat (350), melt 2 Tbsp butter. Add broken pasta and rice. Cook until lightly brown.
Add water and seasonings. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low (250) and cover.
Cook 15-20 minutes, until water is absorbed. Turn off heat and let rest for 5 minutes.
Lifting the lid during cooking may affect rice texture.
Note: Chicken broth may be used instead of water and instant bouillon.
