Made this for the Cook-a-thon in Memory of Pammyowl and DH and I enjoyed it for our lunch down at the beach. I did cut the recipe in half, used homemade chicken broth and fresh mushrooms (which I sauteed with the onions, peppers and celery). A quick and easy dish to prepare when you are in a hurry. Oh yes, I used wild rice which I had made previously and froze.
