The great thing about this recipe is you can switch out the thyme with seasonings like oregano and Italian or poultry seasoning to vary the flavor. Am going to give this a try but think will increase the chicken bouillon quite a bit simply because I prefer the base flavor to be strongest of the seasonings.
Hope you don't mind me making a suggestion. Reduce the rice to 2 cups and substitute the other 1 cup with vermicelli (you can find the already small type in the Mexican food isle) and then brown the vermicelli in the butter before adding the other ingredients. Doing this will make it more like Rice a Roni if you're a Roni fan.
This is a big time saver!

This curried rice mix is an interesting complement for plain chicken or pork.
Layer the ingredients in the order given in a 1 1/2-cup jar.
Attach this to the Jar:
In a medium saucepan bring the water to a boil. Add the rice mix. Cover and reduce the heat to a simmer for 20 minutes.
what do you mean by 1 package? Does the person receiving the gift mix everything together. Is that considered 1 package? I know that it takes 2 cups of liquid to 1 cup of rice to make rice. So does that mean 1 recipe is considered one package?
Mix equal quantities together, and store in an airtight container. Boil as for rice or spaghetti, BUT add 3 times the volume of water, as this mix is very thirsty. Pre-soaking might cut down the cooking time, but I haven't tried it yet.
When cooked, add powdered cumin, if liked, to enhance the smoky flavour. Other spices according to taste: chilli, cayenne pepper, smoked paprika.
This mix is for rice dishes where rice is the main ingredient. It is too flavourful for curries, etc.
Suggested uses: rice salads, rice-cakes, adding flavour to bean-burgers and, if you are a good bread-baker, to home-made bread-dough.

Combine all ingredients in a large bowl and stir until evenly distributed. Put about 1 1/3 cups into three 1-pint containers and label as "Chicken Flavored Rice Mix".
