You will never open another box of Rice-A-Roni after making this rice. This Homemade Chicken Rice-A-Roni is just as easy as the boxed stuff, but it tastes 100 times better! Chicken Legs keeps asking me to make this for dinner. 

I know you might be saying that this is a lot of work for a side dish. It might be if you are measuring out everything each time you make it. I wanted to avoid reaching for the box, so I made several kits of this homemade Rice-A-Roni at one time. I measured out the rice and pasta and put it in a ziplock baggie. Next, I measured out the seasonings and put them in another ziplock baggie. Now, all I have to do is add butter and water. Just like the boxed stuff.

    1. brown rice and wild rice require different liquid measurements and cooking times. I have only made the recipe as written, so I do not know what adjustments would need to be made.

  1. Does this recipe double well? If not, what changes would you make to serve twice the amount of rice & pasta?

  2. Made as the recipe instructs, this legit tastes like “The San Francisco Treat”… only better! And I feel less guilty making it at home :). I want to try adding slivered almonds to this because I seem to remember a version of Rice a Roni that had almonds too. Thanks for a great recipe!
