  • 2 cups uncooked long-grain white rice
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 4 chicken bouillon cubes
  • 4 cups water
  • 1 teaspoon dried marjoram
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 teaspoon dried rosemary
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter or margarine


In a large heavy saucepan, combine all the ingredients. Bring to a boil, reduce the heat, cover, and cook over low heat for about 15 minutes or until the rice is tender and all the liquid has been absorbed. Fluff with a fork.

    I used chicken broth instead of the water and bouillon cubes to reduce the sodium a little. It worked very well and my son had three helpings.
