If you’ve ever enjoyed lemon rice at a Greek diner - it’s the best side dish to ANY meal. Grilled chicken is my favorite meal to serve this with. From start to finish - it takes an hour (tops). The most tedious step is zesting the lemons - but don’t substitute. Converted rice makes a real difference in the outcome - so avoid using standard long grain rice.
This side dish has a heavenly light lemon flavor, the rice doesn’t stick together, and (best of all) you can just throw it in the oven and forget about it. My wonderful neighbor, JoAnn (an amazing cook), shared this with me.
