Homemade Chicken Rice A Roni

I don't know about anyone else, but I would rather make as many scratch recipes as I can. When you can't pronounce half the ingredients in some of these boxed mixes. How on earth do we know what's in it?...LOL! This is my version of chicken Rice - A - Roni...season it up to your liking...Don't like chicken? Try Beef...same concept..very yummy!

How to Make Homemade Chicken Rice A Roni


  1. Break vermicelli into small pieces.
    Melt butter in a non-stick pan over medium heat. Stir in rice and vermicelli; cook, stirring frequently, until vermicelli is lightly browned.
  2. Add chicken broth and spices, except for parsley. Bring to a boil.

    Lower heat to a simmer and cover pan. Simmer for 10 to 15 minutes until rice is just a bit soupy.
  3. Remove from heat, cover and let sit for about 5 minutes. If it gets too dry, just add some water or more broth. Stir in parsley and serve.
  4. Enjoy!
