Rice Pilaf

This rice is a staple in our house. We eat it so often and it wasn’t until the other day that I realized it needed to be shared. It is simple yet full of flavor. I always keep these ingredients on hand to easily add Rice Pilaf to any dinner.  Don’t forget the lemon juice.  It really brighten ups the rice.  It can easily be double if needed.

Rice Pilaf pairs well with:

Grilled Chicken
Chicken Cordon Bleu
Chicken Bundles

2 tbsp. butter
2 Tbls onion, minced
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 cup long-grain white rice
