I love Café Rio’s rice so much but with winter in full force (and my desire to never leave the house in snow) I figure I better learn to make it so I can kill two birds. One for lunch and the other for dinner, chicken goes great with rice.
This recipe is beyond simple because you can make it in a rice cooker or crockpot. I think mine actually tastes better than Café Rio’s, because its made with love and its always soft and fluffy.
