Rice Dressing

Joe Marsiglia


I pulled this recipe from a family dish we made on holidays called, "Baked Hen with Oyster/Rice Dressing". The rice it made was so good I wanted to use it as a regular side dish for meat and fish. It uses chicken broth, butter and 5 aromatics to take an ordinary grain of rice to lofty taste levels.
