Made this last night for dinner and I did add half a small diced onion (not listed in ingredients but in the instructions) and some diced carrots for extra vegies. I loved it (love brown rice) and DH did but said he would rather have white rice. Oh yes, I added homemade chicken broth instead of the water and chicken base. Served with Sour Cream & Onion Baked Fish#417383, Red Lobster Cheddar Bay Biscuits - Copycat#314721 and a green salad. Made for Spring PAC 2013.
