One of my favorite side dishes is rice. It’s so easy to make, it pairs perfectly with so many entrees, and best of all my kids love it. One minute of prep time, at most, and the stove does the rest.
I said it was super easy, didn’t I? Obviously I made a few more things to go with the rice because you can’t really eat rice on its own, can you?

Good to know…
You can make this the day before. If you’re not a fan of sweet, don’t worry the rice isn’t sweet. Use either chicken bouillon or salt, not both. A great and easy side dish.
