"My kids loved this! I added chopped frozen broccoli and used all chicken broth with instant brown rice. I did have to add more liquid."

"When my husband requested a "quick" dinner I turned to this favorite of ours. I used instant brown rice instead of white, just as tasty. It takes more liquid and slightly longer cook time with the brown rice. My mother-in-law substituted green beans in place of the mushrooms and that was equally as good. Great dish for "2" people!"
