Yellow Rice

This is a ‘dump everything and forgot about it’ recipe. Who doesn’t like that? Go about your business while this is cooking on a low heat. Come back to fluffy, flavorful rice. There is no prep time needed as you will only use pantry items which is even better. The 2 mins is for gathering the items needed for this recipe. I’ve served this with Caribbean Jerk Chicken @sarchakra
