Rice. It's what's for a side dish

My sister gave me this recipe in a cookbook she made me for a wedding shower. If you like rice as a side dish this one is a must try.

1 T Butter (I used EVOO)
1/2 cup long-grain cooking rice
1 T Onion, minced (I put a little more)
1/4 tsp. salt
Pepper to taste
1/8 tsp. dried tarragon, thyme, basil, parsley
1/2 cup chicken broth

Melt butter in saucepan. Cook & stir rice and onion until onions are translucent. Stir in seasonings; cook for 1-2 more mins. Add broth; bring to a boil. Simmer covered until rice is tender & liquid is absorbed. Serves 2

Her notes and I agree: Check your rice's directions as far as how long to cook & how much liquid to use. I used marjoram instead of tarragon
