Almond Rice Pilaf

Source: The Martha Stewart Show, March Spring 2008


  • 2 cups homemade or store-bought low-sodium chicken broth
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1/4 cup chopped shallots
  • 2 cups white rice
  • Coarse salt
  • 2 tablespoons coarsely chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1/4 cup sliced almonds, toasted


  1. Bring chicken broth and 1 cup water to a simmer in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat. Meanwhile, in another medium saucepan, melt butter over medium-high heat. Add shallots and cook until soft and translucent, about 2 minutes. Add rice and stir to coat.

  2. Pour heated chicken broth mixture over rice and cover saucepan. Reduce heat to medium-low and cook until all the liquid has evaporated, about 17 minutes.

  3. Remove rice from heat and fluff with a fork; season with salt. Stir in cilantro and almonds; serve immediately.

    There is not enough liquid in this recipe. Had to add more which made it soggy and starchy. Really could use more flavor as well.

    Try this link.
    You will have to copy and paste, I don't think you can link from here.
    It looks interesting, Martha doesn't seem to have this particular chicken recipe (an oversight, I am sure).
