When looking to jazz up your rice, try this tasty recipe. The rice dish has a nice butteriness that comes from the chicken bullion and the toasted almond crunch. The lightly sweet and aromatic apples are divine and pull the dish together. Overall, this is delicious and has a beautiful toasted brown color. It turns plain rice into something special.
