A really nice rice dish. Loved flavor of the chicken broth. The cilantro and green onions stirred in at the end made this seem fancy and fresh.

Wonderful rice! Cut the recipe in half for the two of us and still have enough for another couple of meals. Love the thyme. Thank you for another delicious recipe Ellie. Made for Billboard Recipe Tag.

I knew I would like this recipe when I saw it. I've had a few variations of rice that are similar, and this was enjoyed as expected. As a bonus, I had a lot of leftovers and had family over the day after I made it, so I heated it up in the microwave...and everyone loved it. No one left even a spoonful on their plates, which is of course the true test of whether people really like the food or not. :)
