I substituted the soup broth with water and bouillon (sorry Campbells!); used 2 cloves garlic vs. garlic powder and brown rice rather than the white...the kids and hubby were practically licking their plates, needless to say there were no leftovers!

Sorry, but this was bland and nothing I would make again. I should have known that the chicken would be bland when it is only cooked in a TBSP of oil. So blah even my dog passed up the leftovers. . .and she'll eat most anything!

I had cooked the Minute Rice recipe for Broccili Rice and Cheese the night before and had most of these ingredients left over. I didn't have any basil, so I had to leave that out, but it was easy to cook, delicious, and healthy meal, which fits my bill perfectly. I halved the recipe, and will have plenty left over for lunch tomorrow. I will def. cook this again in the future!!

This was pretty good! My husband and 20-month-old both liked it too. Could have used more seasoning since it was a little bland.

I have Interstitial Cystitis, and this is a quick and easy (and bladder-friendly) recipe for a busy night. All the ingredients are things we have on hand!

I like versatile meals like this. Of course I added a handful of other kinds of vegetables for the kids.

I thought this was a pretty easy dinner to whip up for my husband and I after a long day at work. I didn't have any broccoli on me, but I added in some celery and carrots instead and I also added extra garlic salt and some cajun seasoning as some people reported this to be a little bland. I had the leftovers today for lunch and added a little milk to it which I thought made it taste even better :)

Made something similar years ago but forgot how good this is.
