"I doubled this recipe for dinner tonight. I did omit the tarrigon as that is not a favorite and used a low sodium chicken bouillon cube and the result was absolutely delicious. It is every bit as good as the box mixes, a healthier choice and for pennies of the cost. Will definitely make this again and probably double it again."

"I used only half of the amount of herbs called for and it was still too much. I would definitely try this again, but reduce the herbs even more."

"This is excellent. My husband didn't believe that I made it, he thought it was box rice."
