    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.
