Homemade Rice-a-roni

3 Tbs. butter or margarine
2 boneless skinless chicken breast
(or any meat that is on sale!)
1 Lg onion, finely chopped
1 cup carrots, shredded
1 cup corn (fresh or frozen)
2 Garlic clove, crushed
1 cup long-grain white rice
2 cups chicken stock
1/2 tsp. salt
Fresh cilantro or parsley(optional)

Melt butter in a 2 qt. pan over med-high heat. Add onion, carrots and corn. Cook through until onions are soft (about 5 min)Stir in garlic and rice; stirring constantly, continue cooking until rice begins to brown slightly. Add stock ansd salt: cover and simmer until rice is tender and liquid is absorbed. (about 20 min) Stir in cilantro or parsley if desired.

We eat this at least once a week in one form or another at my house. It is a great recipe because it is so versatile and super cheap to make. If you start with the rice and stock you can change up the veggies or meats and use what ever you have on hand. Get rid of the meat and you have great side dish! Enjoy!
