This recipe can be made in the oven, however, I find it is so easy to make stove top, why bother? But if you want to make it in the oven, then what you will do is:

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  • Follow recipe directions through step 4, where you have your rice and aromatics in a pan.
  • Then add your liquid and transfer to an oven safe cooking dish. Cover with foil.
  • Cook in the oven for about 35 minutes.
  • Remove from the oven, fluff with a fork, and continue with step 7 in the recipe card.
