    Recipe as published in Kraft Food & Family magazine. As these are many of our favorite flavors I thought I would post this. This is a very pretty presentation as well and would be great to serve to company.

      I also saw this in the Kraft magazine and had to try it. It was definitely worth it- it was delicious! I used walnuts instead of the pecans. I also didn't have any thyme, so I used parsley. It was so good... definitely a keeper. Thanks for posting it!

      This was really good! I did season the chicken with some salt (1/4 tsp) in addition to the thyme and pepper. I used 1/3 less fat Neufchatel cheese and it worked great. I also replaced 1/4 cup of the broth with dry white wine. The rice reminds me of a rice stuffing that might be served at Thanksgiving.
