    Diana- I made this yesterday- I added instant brown rice with some chicken broth for the last hour or so, ( going for the one dish dinner) and after we all walked in after soccer practice- dinner was ready…The whole house smelled good! Served with blue corn chips with flax seeds…delicious! Everyone loved it. Thanks!
