Any dish is better with rice, especially around the holidays. When I prepare this dish, I love using Ralston Family Farms rice! Being able to follow this grain from their farm to my fork is one of the many reasons I love Ralston rice! Since Ralston Family Farms is located along the Arkansas River, it allows them to work in environmentally friendly ways during the growing season! Whipping up this recipe is so quick and easy! This dish is great for all my holiday guests, and it’s tasty, too!
