I doubled this recipe. I don't know if it's because I used low sodium chicken broth, but I found this dish to be completely flavorless. I had to add a lot of salt.

Absolutely love this dish. My daughter requests to have this made a least once a week.

Quick and yummy side dish. I served this with the Salisbury Steak recipe from the same issue. It was fresh and light tasting.

Awesome, quick side dish to throw together! Will definitely do frequently. Although it said 2 servings, it served 4 quite well.
