This recipe was originally shown on a Food 911 episode on Food Network. I have modified the recipe to use easy-to-find ingredients. This is even better the next day.

A New Year's resolution was to eat healthier, so we tried this. It was terrific! We used low sodium, fat free chicken broth in place of the water & a few red pepper flakes for more heat. Didn't have any rice, but it was wonderful by itself. Looking forward to making this again & again! Thanks for sharing!
