This is my new favorite side dish. In fact, I would eat this alone as a meal, for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. I will say, however, you need to like onions because it does have a fairly strong onion taste to it.
Brown 3/4 cup chopped onion and 1/2 cup slivered almonds in 1 Tb butter. Add 2 cups chicken broth; bring to a boil. Stir in 2 cups uncooked instant rice (I use brown rice). Cover; remove from heat; let stand for 5 minutes. Serves 6.
