Super Easy Asian Yellow Rice

Super Easy Asian Yellow Rice

Going out to eat at Chinese restaurants is one of my favorite things to do! I know I can always find something delicious on the menu! When I can't go out, I love to try those same menu items at home.
 I've had great success with Asian dishes and have learned that all you need is the proper ingredients and a great recipe! I always keep a bottle of good quality 'pure' sesame oil on hand because it really makes all the difference! Plus fresh veggies, poultry, seafood and beef...depending on what I'm making. Some of the most favorite recipes I've made so far are Sweet and Sour Chicken...Easy Lo Mein...Poor Man's Mongolian Beef and Asian Spaghetti and Meatballs. Now I'm adding this Asian yellow rice to my list!

 I love this next recipe because you just mix everything together in one pot, cover and let simmer until the rice is cooked! This is the perfect side dish to so many Asian style recipes. And it's ready in about 15 minutes! I found this recipe on a blog called Yeahilike by Stella San. I tweaked her recipe by adding sesame oil, chicken broth and celery. These minor changes really made this rice dish very similar to the yellow rice I always get with my 'combo meals' from my local Chinese take-out place! A nice change of pace from the usual 'fried rice' because it's a much lighter, fresher taste.
