Very good! I made this to have with Chinese Five Spice Chicken. It was delicious and we loved the Asian flavors together.

This was great with Huli Huli chicken! We loved the flavors together very much. The crunch from the almonds made a nice texture to the pilaf. Saving to have again with other meats .

Good flavors enough to make it again! The only thing I would do different is possibly use a little less lime juice, because there was a bit of a pucker, but not too, too much. Thank you Mikekey for sharing. Made it for Pick Me Tag.

This is a wonderfully zingy pilaf. It was the perfect counterpoint to the sweet and spicy chicken we made for supper with its citrus flavor. The slivered almonds were a nice contrast texturally and flavor-wise. Made during Alphabet Tag Game. Thanks for another great recipe, Mikekey!
