A few simple ingredients is all you need to take a white rice recipe from boring and bland to flavorful and delicious!
White Rice Recipe
If you’ve been around 30days for the last couple of years, you have most likely seen my Stick of Butter Rice. It was my Great-Grandma’s recipe that my Mom had and I begged her for it years ago because it is my favorite rice of all time. When I was at my Mom’s house recently, she made an equally awesome rice. It’s so dang simple but oh my word it’s good. And now I’m passing it on to you.
How to Cook Rice
Looking for more flavorful rice? You need a few simple ingredients. Here’s how you make it:
- Gather ingredients (in recipe below).
- Sauté the onions in butter and take in the smell. YUM!
- Add rice and sauté or a little bit more.
- Finally, add the chicken broth and when it starts boiling, turn down the heat to simmer.
In the end you’ll have the tastiest, easiest rice ever. YUM!!!
Standard rice recipes ask for 1 1/2 cups or 1 3/4 cups of uncooked rice to 1 cup of liquid. This white rice recipe falls within that standard ratio by using a 14 oz can of chicken broth to bring on the flavor.

Does the rice need to be covered while cooking in the chicken broth?
Mique, thanks for getting back with me so quickly.

Thanks, I’ll definitely be making this!
No, you don’t but it would not taste as good without the onions.
My questions is, what kind of rice? Is this minute rice?
Hi Gloria- it isn’t minute rice. It’s regular long grain rice.
Try these two rice recipes, which use a similar technique of sauteeing the rice while dry before adding liquid. Both have become staples in my house. The spanish rice freezes really well too.
Thanks for sharing!
Do you have to use and/or put onions in it?
You don’t have to put the onions in it. But I love it like that. ;)
