Oven Baked Spanish Rice

This oven baked Spanish Rice recipe is perfect every time I make it. It’s so easy and everyone asks for the recipe - so make sure you bookmark this one! The secret to this recipe is the Knorr Tomato Chicken Bullion. You can substitute chicken broth but I assure you the flavor will not be the same unless you use this exact product. You can find it at your local grocery store or order some from Amazon.

  2. In a 9x13 pan combine all ingredients with water mixture and stir so that everything is evenly distributed. Cover tightly with foil.
