“By making this in a rice cooker, you can avoid burning the rice and having to watch the pot. Make sure your rice cooker is at least a 6 cup capacity or cooked product won’t fit. If you like your vegetables crisper or don’t want to take the time, you can skip the sautéing step; just melt the butter before adding to the rice cooker. Also, if you don’t like diced tomatoes increase the chicken broth to 4 cups and use a 5 oz can of tomato paste in place of the diced tomatoes.”
