Make room in your cook book for this dish! Miss Annie uses poultry seasoning to transform a simple chicken and rice dish into an addiction. I thin sliced the carrots and mushrooms and browned the onions and mushrooms. I might add a bit more poultry seasoning next time because it enhances the the other flavors without dominating. Thank you Ann, I will make this often and share the recipe with my family and friends.
I was in one of those "I have stuff to make but don't want to make any of it for dinner" ruts, but knew I had to use up the chicken and mushrooms in the fridge, so I found this recipe. I used only 12oz of boneless skinless breast which I chopped and cooked with olive oil spray before cooking the rice mixture. I used brown rice (and had to add a bit more water as a result). I mixed in some thawed frozen spinach at the end, and now this fantastic, not-too-high-calorie dinner is ready! If I add a little cheese to it, I am sure even my picky two-old will eat it. Good stuff.
Pretty good. As some other reviewers noted, it needs more salt.
