Prep Time 8 minutes
Cook Time 15 minutes
Resting Time 5 minutes
Total Time 28 minutes
Servings 4 servings
- 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
- 1 onion chopped
- 1 garlic clove peeled
- 1 cup long grain rice
- 2 cups chicken stock
- 1 bay leaf
- a handful of fresh parsley chopped
- salt and pepper to taste
Melt the butter with the onion in a medium saucepan over medium heat and cook until the onions are soft, about 5 minutes.
Add the garlic clove and rice and stir until coated with the butter.
Increase the heat to medium-high.
Stir in chicken stock, bay leaf, and parsley. Season with salt and pepper, raise the heat to medium-high heat and bring to a boil. As soon as it reaches a boil, lower the heat to a low heat, cover and cook until all the stock has been absorbed by the rice and the rice is tender, about 15 to 18 minutes.
Remove from the heat and let sit for 5 minutes. Discard the bay leaf and garlic clove. Fluff the rice and serve.
