*Note - Rice brands will vary use so cook times for this will vary. However, you know when the liquid had just about all been absorbed by the rice...your rice is done. Take a quick taste to verify. If not, add in a little more liquid until it is done to your liking.
Whatever amount of liquid is called for to cook your brand of rice change that to half water and half chicken or vegetable stock.
