    I made this recipe using a 4.5 oz. box of white and wild rice, not a 6 oz. like stated in the recipe. I used less cooking liquid. I used peas in place green beans ( should have used carrots too for color), omitted pimentos, bacon, and almonds. I didn't bake this either, just made it all on the stove. My boxed rice flavor packet was very salty so it's a great thing that I used low sodium chicken broth (I'll use water next time since it's really a waste to use broth) and 'healthy request' soup mix. Will definitely make again.

    This was really simple and very filling. A great way to use rotisserie chicken to speed things up on busy weeknights. The only sub I made was sliced up sweet red pepper for pimentos since that's what I had on hand. Delicious! Family liked it!

    Made as it except omitted the bacon. . If I were to add bacon it would be more than 1 strip. Great tasting recipe. Love the almonds

    Very tasty - tastes like it has a higher fat content than it does. Would definitely make this again.
