1/4 onion diced
2 c. of Rice
1 8oz can of tomato sauce
4 c. of water (or chicken broth and exclude the boullion)
Chicken Boullion
Salt Pepper Garlic to taste.

Fill the bottom of a pot (make sure it has a lid) with oil just enough to cover it.

Brown rice and onions.

When browned add Can of tomato Sauce.

Add water (usually I'll fill up the can of tomato sauce 4 times with water instead of measuring out water). I usually add a little bit more water because I don't like my rice to be dry.

Add 2 chicken boullion cubes (crushed).

Add Salt, Pepper Garlic.

Boil. Once boiled, cover pot and turn to Low heat for a high simmer. DO NOT LIFT LID. Cook for 20 min. Turn off and let it sit for 5 min.

All stoves are different so you may need to cook it for longer but this is the average
