Very tasty ! We are trying to eat healthier since my husband was diagnosed with digestive disease. Sometimes it is hard to find dishes that are flavorful but low fat and low residue. This recipe fits the bill. All the flavors blend nicely. I used fat free chicken stock as the base, otherwise followed the recipe. This one is a keeper. Thanks for posting.
