Add the chicken stock and soy sauce. Stir and bring the liquid to a boil. Turn down the heat to medium low, or until the rice is gently simmering. Cook until rice is tender and the liquid has been absorbed, or between 12 and 18 minutes.

  1. I really had a great time stopping by your site, it gives me a lot of information. You can also visit my site, thank you!



  2. Seasoned rice recipe is not quite there. Makes no mention of when to incorporate the parsley. I assume with the onions, at least that's when I added it in. Additionally the amount of soy sauce is about twice the real amount needed. The same can be said for the cayenne.

    With those both reduced accordingly this is much closer to the real deal stuff.

  3. I really enjoyed reading your article. I found this as an informative and interesting post, so i think it is very useful and knowledgeable. I would like to thank you for the effort you have made in writing this article.


  4. I agree with just some dude. Waaaay spicier than the original. Honestly I would suggest cutting all of the hot spices. I wasn't sure either when to add the parsley, but I did it last so it would wrinkle as much.

  5. I assume the reference to "pepper" is to "black pepper" beings cayenne is already mentioned?
