This is fantastic! The rice takes some time to cook so plan ahead. or use leftover rice. ;) this comes together in a snap. i poached the chicken in the chicken broth & carried on. dd & i enjoyed this for lunch last week while she was re-habbing her legs under ice. thank you! made for Greens Tag in the Diabetic Forum.
