Chicken Broth

Now, let’s talk broth! Chicken broth can be used as a base for soups, stews, gravies and sauces. In this recipe we are substituting water for broth to add more flavor and depth to the rice. Be sure to always have chicken broth on hand, and you can easily turn leftover bits and bobs into dinner (or a tasty snack!).
