Rice with Noodles

    35 min

    A fantastic Armenian side dish that's super-easy to make. Rice is simmered with pan-fried egg noodles until tender. This dish goes particularly well with chicken.

    1. Melt butter in large saucepan over medium-high heat. Add the egg noodles and stir until they begin to brown, being careful not to burn the butter. Stir in the rice. Continue stirring until rice is coated with butter.
    2. Pour in the chicken stock and add the stock cubes. Bring to the boil; reduce heat to low and cover tightly. Cook without uncovering pot until all the liquid has been absorbed, about 20 minutes.

    I used to do catering for an Armenian friend of mine, and all we wanted was the FOOD - forget money. THIS is the closest thing I have found YET that even comes close to hers. DO NOT add a "pinch" of anything - this is the way it is SUPPOSED to taste. YUM. Even my super picky never eats rice daughter asked for THIRDS!  -  07 Jul 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Very popular family recipe. We Love it here! Whenever we have baked chicken we make this. Great with warmed sweet corn.  -  21 Mar 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This would probably be 6 stars as written...I am trying to cut sodium and fat so I used low sodium chicken base and only one Tbsp of butter for 2 servings. Also, the serving size it quite large. We had plenty left over.  -  11 Aug 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
