Okay boys, this is the rice pilaf that you love. It is absolutely addictive! It's very good with any chicken dish.
Preheat oven to 350
1 Box Lipton's chicken noodle soup
3 cups of water
3/4 Cup white rice
1/2 stick butter (this can be reduced to 1 tbl)
1/2 small onion, chopped finely
Remove the boullion cubes from the 2 packets and put into the water. Bring to a boil, stir to dissolve & reserve.
Saute rice in butter until brown. Add the noodles from the 2 packets and continue browning. Add the chopped onion and saute til translucent. (May be made ahead up to this point.) Move to an oven-proof dish like pyrex. Bring boullion back to the boil and add to the rice. Cover with aluminum foil and let back 35-45 minutes.
