Rice a Roni Repair

We recently ordered a case of Chicken Rice a Roni and discovered that the "flavor packets" were missing from each box. So, Marion improvised a recipe which mimics the original with great success.

Brown the rice and noodle bits in the usual way.
Add the 2½ cups of water.
Add ⅛ teaspoon each of MSG, garlic powder, onion powder, Marmite
Add 1 tblsp of "Better than Boullion" or equivalent chicken essence
