I saw this recipe on the Food Network show 5 Ingredient Fix with Claire Robinson. It was on a tv at the gym, and it looked so good I went home and looked up the recipe (and only having 5 ingredients is a plus!). I served it with the balsamic chicken I recently posted, but it would be good with just about any meat dish! It has a great flavor because you cook it in chicken broth instead of water, and the pecans add a nice crunch!
Rice Pilaf with Pecans and Scallions
[ original recipe here ]
1 cup low-sodium chicken broth
1 cup water
1–2 Tbsp olive oil (if you're making this in a rice cooker you can omit this)

1 cup long-grain white rice
salt and pepper, to taste
1/2 cup toasted chopped pecans or walnuts
Place rice, chicken broth and water in a rice cooker. Cook!
When rice is done, add scallions, pecans, and salt and pepper. Stir and serve!
