Asian Sesame Rice

Asian sesame rice is so incredibly fragrant and delicious.  From the moment the jasmine rice comes to a boil the nutty aroma permeates your senses.  Once the sesame oil touches the steaming rice, the air is filled with a dynamic nutty aroma.  All of this is building up to the pure satisfaction of diving into a bowl of this fabulous rice.  You are going to love it.

Asian Sesame Rice is the perfect accompaniment to Simple Asian Honey Grilled Chicken with Marinade.  Enjoy it as a side or on its own.
