    Lost and Found

    I had this recipe in french Years ago and it was one of my favourites. The little booklet that it came in, I've lost with so many house moves. Fortunately, I found it again here with different title. But same one, same ingredients with two small differences. I used to prepare all and cook in the oven. While this one is stove top. doesn't matter, i'm sure is the same and can be modified to be cooked in the oven instead. The Rice wasn't instant but normal long grain rice. Love it and yes, i'll make this again. Thanks Campbells for keeping this recipe.
