Made this for dinner tonight and the family loved it. Took some shortcuts by using Swanson chicken broth and a traditional rotisserie chicken (deboned, meat shredded, and skin discarded). I added a rib of celery chopped coarsely like the onion, a dash of red pepper flakes, black pepper to taste, 2 tbsp of minced garlic to broth, and ONLY 1/2 tsp of Italian seasoning which was plenty. Also added 2 tbsp of melted butter when I added the rice to cook. Easy on the salt because of the existing saltiness of the broth and bullion cubes. I let the meats, seasonings, and broth simmer together for at least an hour before adding 2 cups of rice. Stirred at 10 min intervals and let it cook on simmer for 30 mins. It was great! Served with fried okra, cornbread, and cantaloupe.
