Evie, what a great recipe!! Just being me, I freeze my leftover chicken in 1 Cup amounts, so I scaled the recipe down. It's still delicious, plus being so easy and Low Sodium and Fat, too. I had some Mexican Oregano that went well with this. No green onions so I used 1/4 of a yellow one. I think in the future I'll try mixing a small amount of Salsa and/or some green chiles with it, too. So many possibilities! YUMM. Thanks for posting a great recipe for a single senior. jim
