Preheat oven to 350 degrees and position a rack in the middle of the oven.
Set a medium 3-quart ovenproof saucepan over medium heat on the stove top.
Once the pan is hot, add the oil. Once the oil is shimmering, add the rice and onion. Stir frequently until the grains of rice turn from translucent to milky-white. About 5 minutes. To keep the overall end appearance white, don't let the rice brown.
Add the garlic and stir until fragrant. About 1 minute.
Add the chicken broth and about 1 teaspoon salt. Stir a couple of times and let the mixture come to a full boil.
Cover the pan and set in the middle of the oven.
Bake 25 minutes. Remove from oven and stand 5 minutes.
Fluff the rice with a fork and sprinkle with chopped parsley. Serve immediately.
How To Reheat Oven Rice: t's easy. Just place the amount of rice that you wish to reheat in a microwave safe bowl. Break up any lumps with a fork. Sprinkle with a little water and reheat in 15 second increments until rice is heated through. Can Rice Be Frozen? Absolutely yes. I like to place leftovers in a Zip-lock freezer bag so I can press out the air and store in the freezer flat. It will keep in the freezer for a couple of months. Leftover rice makes great fried rice. Rice will keep in the refrigerator up to 4 days.
