This was very easy, and turned out great. It tasted much better than I expected. I made it exactly as it is written, and my husband, who doesn't usually rice any way except with brown sugar, ate his all up! What I liked best was along with great flavor it was also light on calories. Submitted by:

The recipe sounds great. To make the recipe low in fat I will add all ingriedients with the rice when cooking, to eliminate the oil. It should still be crunchy because of the water chestnuts. Thanks for the idea! Submitted by:

This was very good as is, but I like a little more spice so I added some Oriental 5 spice powder. I also wanted to salt it a little, so going Oriental, I added about 1tbsp of soy sauce. It was fantastic!! Used the pecans, but bet it would be great with Almonds. Submitted by:

This was SUCH a great dish to accompany a baked chicken breast. I added a Steamfresh Asian Medley to the mix, after I cooked my celery and onions (because I had to improv on what I had - also, no sugar) and used 1 tbsp of lite soy sauce and it made up beautifully. Love the pecans! Submitted by:

Very bland. Needs spicing up, maybe some salt and red pepper flakes next time. And sliced green onoins instead of green pepper. Didn't really care for the water chestnuts, might leave them out. Overall, not a bad dish and I plan to make it again. Thanks. Submitted by:

Love rice, so any variation soulds great. And this doesn't add that much more in calories to a half cup serving. Sound like great party fare. Submitted by:
