It would have helped for an amount for the chicken stock, better times for cooking each stage, or at least close proximity. They were good but dry

I made these Sicilian rice balls for a gathering we had over the weekend and everyone was impressed by all the spice and flavor that was rolled up into these delectable balls. I have already shared this recipe with 5 other people who loved them. I will definitely make this 4 star recipe again in the future.
