rice cooking alternatives

post #1 of 9

I have one of those rice cooker thingies and was wondering if I could put something else in the cooker like chicken broth instead of water? Or do I still have to use water?

I think you could use chicken broth just don't add additional salt though.

I actually prefer cooking rice in broth rather than water, but then again I don't use a rice cooker so don't know if there would be a problem although I can't imagine why you couldn't. I've also used some tomato juice.

Usually I just cook the rice on the stove, when finished I add butter (quite a bit), lemon juice and parsley. Love it that way.

Ok thanks. I think mine is the same brand. My SO isn't a fan of many veggies and I'm trying to make some chicken and rice for dinner. Wanted to think of a way to kinda kick up the rice since he made it clear he didn't want steamed veggies with it.

I have only used water with mine. I use that thing all the time. Brown rice requires more water than white rice.

I eat plain rice and shrimp usually 3 days a week.

Last summer I nannied for family from China and that is what got me started. I go through rice pretty quick--I never thought of adding chicken broth instead. I use both a rice cooker and when at work I use a regular sauce pan on the stove.
