Expert Tips

During slow cooking, the chicken bones will release extra flavor into the broth.

Chinese five-spice powder combines equal parts of cinnamon, cloves, fennel seed, star anise and Szechuan peppercorns. This ground seasoning is popular in Asian recipes.

Cook the rice the night before; cool and refrigerate it. Chop the onions, slice the celery and chop the cilantro and refrigerate them separately. Before serving, microwave the rice in a covered microwavable glass bowl on High for 5 to 6 minutes or until hot, stirring once.
