This is definitely a family favorite in our home. I make a couple of small changes like cutting back on the chicken broth to 2 cups and replacing the 3rd cup with 1/2 cup white wine and 1/2 cup water. I also wait until my rice cooker is steaming (toward the end of the cook cycle) before I add the spinach so the spinach doesn't get overcooked. Thanks for the recipe!
Fantastic recipe and very easy to make. Thanks for sharing. :)
Excellent meal! My rice cooker wasn't big enough to hold everything so when the rice and spinich were done I put it into the skillet with the chicken and mushrooms! Very filling and tasty! It will be made again in our house!
