As seen on News at Five with Diana Davis, here is the 2006 Miss Craighead County Rice recipe from Ms. Kellye Griffin...
Prepare rice mix according to package directions, omitting butter. Meanwhile, in a large saucepan, saute chicken, mushrooms, onions, and carrots in oil until chicken is no longer pink and vegetables are tender.
Add the prepared rice, broth, tarragon, thyme, and pepper; bring to a boil. Combine cornstarch and evaporated milk until smooth; stir into rice mixture. Return the mixture to a boil; cook for 1-2 minutes or until slightly thickened. Garnish with green onions. Yield: 10 servings.
