I used chicken broth instead of water to cook the rice for this recipe. I find the chicken broth adds a lot of flavours. Also, chicken broth is full of healthy fat and other nutrients that are good for you.
In terms of rice, you can choose your favourite. I used white rice in this picture, but brown rice will work just as well
