A delicious and quick side dish to serve a group or, with the addition of cooked, diced chicken, it can become a one-dish meal. Fox Point Seasoning, parmesan cheese, and diced canned tomatoes give delicious flavor to very simple cooked rice.

  • 2 Cups plain white rice (we like Riceland)
  • 4 Cups water
  • 1 tsp. butter
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1 8 oz. can diced or chunk canned tomatoes (we used unseasoned)
  • 1/2 Cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 2 TB. shredded parmesan cheese (optional–it is a nice finishing touch sprinkled on top but isn’t absolutely necessary)

Preheat oven to 325°. Mix rice, water, butter, and salt in a small, heavy pan. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat, cover, reduce heat to low and cook 12 minutes. The key is to not overcook the rice. Spread the rice in a 9"X13" glass pan, add tomatoes, FOX POINT SEASONING, and mozzarella cheese. Stir gently to combine. Too much stirring causes the rice to get sticky. Sprinkle parmesan cheese on top and cover loosely with foil. Return to the oven for 20 minutes, or until cheese has melted and dish is heated through. The pan of rice will hold well in the oven for quite some time, just turn the oven down to 200° and crimp the foil cover on tightly.
