{  Homemade Chicken Rice-A-Roni  }
Secret Recipe Club

If one of my favorite foods can be "homemade", I'll probably try to make it. Well, at least once. There is just something about making something and being able to say "Look, look what I made, it's just like the boxed or canned kind but I made it!!" While I'm still not into going all organic, I do like the good feeling that I get when I know what's in my food. 

This month for  Secret Recipe Club I was give Carrie's blog Carrie's Sweet Life. I love looking through Carrie's blog. Between the Cake Batter DipWhite Cheddar Chicken Pasta, and Creamsicle Cupcakes it was hard to decide on exactly what to make. 

But since I had recently been talking about the Homemade Spaghetti-Os I made, when I saw her Homemade Rice A Roni I knew that was what I wanted to try to make next! Had I known that homemade Rice-A-Roni was this easy, I would have been making it all along. 

Last year Amanda  (Amanda's Cookin) started a Club called The Secret Recipe Club. This club give's its members the opportunity to check out new blogs and recipes all of the time!  April has know taken over the club and is doing a fantastic job as our Secret Recipe Club Leader :)

I doubled the recipe and added measurements for the seasonings that I used.

Homemade Chicken Rice-A-Roni

1 cup raw angel hair pasta broken into 1/2 inch long pieces
1 1/2 cup uncooked long-grain white rice
4 cups chicken broth
2 cup water
4 tablespoons butter or margarine
1/2 teaspoon seasoning salt
1/4 teaspoon white pepper
1/2 teaspoon onion powered
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
2 chicken bouillon cube


In medium skillet saute broken pasta pieces in butter, stirring constantly, until the pasta begins to brown. 
Add rice, stirring until the rice is well coated with the butter and the pasta browns a little more. 
Carefully pour in broth and water. Stir.
Add in the spices and bouillon cubes. Cover and simmer until liquid is absorbed. Should take about 20-25 minutes

Yield: 6-8 large servings
