Sounds great and I don't want to lose it.

Top Review by Sherry

I cooked this on the stove top instead of baking it in the oven. I brought it all to a boil and turned heat down to simmer until broth was absorbed. I found out I didn't have any Thyme after I started putting ingredients in the pan so I just made this without the Thyme and Basil. I also used brown rice instead of white rice. It was pretty good. I think I would add more lemon juice next time though and maybe even some garlic.
