“Ok....my sweet tooth hit overdrive tonight and I wanted my dinner to reflect that! I didn't want to wait for dessert for the good stuff....so here is a recipe that I found from President's Choice that definitely satisfied my need for sweet....but not overkill! This IS actually a dessert but I needed something to go with my Lemon Chicken and Fresh Snow Peas...so I decided that this would fill the empty spot on my plate. While I was waiting for my chicken to finish cooking, I was sampling this Jasmine Rice delight...and it was mighty hard to wait to put it on the plate! Hope you enjoy this as much as I did!”
