I made this tonight for the first time, and couldn't believe how easy and delicious it was! I used a broccoli and chicken rice mix, as it was all I had, and cut the chicken into bite size pieces. I also used fresh broccoli and added some carrots, and served the dish with a side salad and roasted green beans and asparagus. A quick and very tasty meal. Thanks!
Thanks for the recipe, but, to me, it would have been horribly bland. <br/><br/>But, given the fab ingredients, I put my international and healthy spin on it. <br/><br/>I used 3 garlic cloves minced (instead of powder), a handful of fresh organic parsley, a handful of fresh organic basil, 2 cups of jasmine rice (healthier than prepackaged), 4 cups of water, a pinch of seasoned salt (or celery salt), a teaspoon of black pepper (I ise freshly ground), 2 tablespoons of chili powder, a teaspoon of yellow curry powder (excellent in ANY caserole in SMALL doses) and Panko breadcrumbs as a topper. You can always use regular breadcrumbs or cornflake crumbs, but panko is the crunchiest and healthiest. <br/><br/>FRESH makes it BEST!

Welcome! I joined this website in 2001, as a new wife and Mom of a 1 y/o and I was 28 yrs old and did not know about cooking. I found this website cause I searched the web and wanted to find a good recipe for carrots! I found that recipe and so much more here over the years. I learned so much from this website and opened up my eyes to other recipes. I now am 46 y/o. I am now divorced and my then 1 y/o son is now a Marine. I have a wonderful man in my life that loves and appreciates my cooking and I thank this site for all of its help. I still come here for recipes. I hope you like my recipes and your family enjoys them also....there is many here and I love to pass them on.
