I love the Rice A Roni seasoned rice mixes but they are pricey if not on sale. I am excited to try this recipe so I can have my own frugal version and not have to wait for sales! Thanks, Elaine!

I really love to try this since I recently change all my sugar and salt intake. Too much sugar and salt are in the store bought mixes. This is nice I can control what I put in the mix and still enjoy seasoned rice.

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.

My grand daughter who lives with me is gluten intolerant. And all the commercial mixes have vermicelli in them and therefore she cannot eat them. This will solve the problem as it is just rice with flavorings. I think I would add more bouillon. Thanks for the recipe. I will also add a can of white meat chicken.

A cheaper version of the classic Rice-a-Roni mix. I hate paying high prices for the foods my family loves and try to recreate as many as possible.

This curried rice mix is an interesting complement for plain chicken or pork.

Inspired by reading about Rice-a-Roni. We don't have it here, I made my own version. Result: a lovely smoky-tasting mix, very unusual.

Does anyone have a homemade recipe for the herbs in Rice a Roni? I would like to use brown rice instead of the white rice in most of their boxes.

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".

Bring to a boil, cover and reduce heat. Simmer for 15 minutes or until rice is tender...
