“This is a great way to serve rice. The 'green' comes from parsley and green onion. Very tasty and easy! Found this in 2002 Quick Cooking Recipes. If you are using chicken broth you may want to add a 1/2 tsp of salt to the pot. Bouillon is already salty and doesn't require any. Likewise with butter. If you are using unsalted and a little salt to the pot. ”
