Herbed Lemon Rice



  1. 1 1/2 teaspoons olive oil
  2. 1/2 small onion, minced
  3. 1/2 cup long-grain rice
  4. 1 bay leaf
  5. 1/2 teaspoon finely grated lemon zest
  6. 1 cup chicken stock or canned low-sodium broth
  7. 2 tablespoons dry white wine
  8. 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  9. 1/2 teaspoon salt
  10. 2 teaspoons finely chopped tarragon
  1. Preheat the oven to 350°. Heat the oil in a casserole. Add the onion and cook over moderate heat, stirring, until softened, about 5 minutes. Add the rice, bay leaf and lemon zest and cook, stirring, until the rice is well coated.
  2. Add the stock, wine, lemon juice and salt and bring to a boil. Cover and bake in the oven for about 20 minutes, or until the rice is tender and has absorbed the liquid. Fluff with a fork and discard the bay leaf. Stir in the tarragon and serve.
