You'll never want plain rice again when you stir up this colorful, flavorful version. Saffron tints it golden, broth flavors it just right, and raisins add a touch of sweetness. This dish accompanies chicken and pork dishes with real flair!

What You'll Need:
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 2 cups uncooked long-grain rice
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground saffron (see note)
  • 1 (32-ounce) container chicken broth
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 1/2 cup raisins
What To Do:
  1. Melt butter in a Dutch oven, and sauté onion 5 minutes. Stir in rice and saffron; sauté 5 minutes.

  2. Add broth and pepper; bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer 20 minutes or until liquid is absorbed and rice is tender. Remove from heat, and stir in raisins. Cover and let stand 5 minutes.

Notes

Since saffron can be pricey, it's okay to substitute an equal amount of turmeric for it here.
