My Mother-In-Law, Sister-In-Law and I threw this together out of my SIL's pantry for an impromptu dinner one night. I've made a tweak or two (meaning two weeks later I couldn't remember all we'd done!) and now my family just inhales this. Even my picky 9 yr old! The quantity for the chicken broth is approximate....I use it out of a box and used about 1/2 a box.
