The Original Recipe:
We like Uncle Ben's rice, but it does have a lot of sodium and perservatives in it. This is a great alternative. I am not saying it tastes just like the original Uncle Ben's, but it is good enough on it's own. Just a warning. I used no sodium chicken bullion. I read reviews that said it was to salty, so if you don't use no sodium bullion, then you might want to omit the salt.
