This recipe was wonderful. I added an extra packet of the chicken broth, peppers to everything. I will using this again.

1 used 2 large chicken breasts and a bullion cube in water instead of a packet. This works great over rice. Will make again.

I was actually quite surprised at how good and flavorful this recipe was. And it's very healthy. I didn't have the concentrate broth packets so I just made a very concentrated broth w/ buillio...

Great recipe. Trader Joe's carries a low sodium chicken broth concentrate that is delicious--more intense, less salty flavor.

Ok, recipe, but not 5 stars. just ok as far as my family of 6 was concerned. THe broccoli absorbed too much of the broccoli and my kids who normally scarf it down, barelly touched it.

tasty and easy to make. I only used one packet of concentrated chicken broth (to cut down on the salt) and as I browned the chicken I sprinkled salt-free Lemon Pepper seasoning on the chicken.

I used chicken stock and thickened it at the end of cooking with corn starch. Yum!
