Recipe by WiGal

Our family and friends love this low fat side dish. When I have a vegetarian here, I use vegetable broth instead of chicken. This recipe came from Cooking Light magazine.

A very nice side dish to whatever else you want to make. It would go well with grilled meat or veggies or a roast. It would certainly serve as lunch all by itself since it has so many healthy ingredients built right in.
