Thanks to all for the suggested substitutions. I followed the recipe except I used the suggested porcini mushrooms, bay leaves and Uncle Bens w/seasoning pack. My substitutions included making the broth from backs and wings that I keep in a freezer bag. Simmered about 2 hours w/onions, celery, bay leaf. Drain, discard the meat and bones. I then cut up a honey rotisserie chicken purchased from the market and added (great flavor!). I partially cooked the rice w/ seasoning packet then added to broth. I did not use milk in my roux. I instead used the water from the reconstitute dried mushrooms and extra chicken broth. Tastes wonderful the next day. Rich, creamy and thick.
