why do some people boil their pasta and rice in chicken broth instead of water. doesn't it give it a weird taste.?

Rich taste. Pasta and rice have hardly any taste by themselves.

Most here are saying rice yes, but not pasta, but both would work, especially if you will be using the broth you cook the pasta in...for a soup, sauce or gravy. The starch from the pasta cooking would lessen the thickener you'd need when you make it.
It just depends on what you're doing with it after.

It adds a nice subtle taste to the rice / pasta, especially if your having them with chicken in the meal,

No it tastes good, unless you don’t like chicken

If your making chicken noodle or rice soup and you boil the noodles or rice in with the soup it will not taste odd.

Because they LIKE the taste.

It is to give taste. I do not boil pasta in chicken broth, because most of the boiling liquid will be discarded. However, I frequently cook rice in chicken brother for additional flavor.

I do cook my rice in both chicken and beef stock but I wouldn't cook pasta like spaghetti in it. But the idea is to impart the flavor of the broth or stock rather than just salty water.

Never done it to pasta but I've done it to rice many times. It imparts a nice flavor to the rice. If you're doing a chicken and rice meal...that flavoring to the rice can enhance things a bit.
