Baked rice #4

Yield: 4 Servings

Measure Ingredient
2 cups Chicken stock
1 cup Milk
½ cup Heavy cream
1 Bouquet garni
Coarse salt
Pepper; ground
1 medium Onion; diced
2 tablespoons Sweet butter
1½ cup Carolina (long grain) rice
1 pinch Saffron threads
2 tablespoons Parmesan; grated
2 tablespoons Chives; chopped

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Combine the chicken stock, milk, cream, bouquet garni, salt and pepper in a saucepan. Cover. Simmer for 20 minutes.

Remove and discard the bouquet garni. Set the chicken stock mixture aside.

Soften the onion in the butter over low heat in a large, oven proof skillet. Add the rice and saffron. Cook, stirring gently, until the rice grains are opaque. Add the chicken stock mixture. Stir until well mixed.

Cover. Bake for 20 minutes. Test for doneness. If underdone, cover and let stand, steaming, at room temperature until done. Stir in the cheese and chives. Serve.
