Nutrition & Calorie Comments  

I checked the nutrition breakdown by ingredient (right under the nutrition info) and it included chicken breast which would account for 14.1 g of protein. Without the chicken the protein count would drop drastically. Looking forward to making it without the chicken. Sounds yummy and healthier. Submitted by:

Good basic recipe. We had stopped making rice-a-roni because of the salt, glad to have a good substitute but will add more spices next time. Also added mixed vegies into pilaf. Submitted by:

Just the versatile side that I have been looking for. I can add veggies and protein for a complete meal. Submitted by:

Sounds good, but I'm going to try this with quinoa instead of white rice - more useful protein and good things in quinoa than rice. Submitted by:

Ooh, a MUCH healthier San Francisco treat (especially with brown rice and ww pasta). My family really likes Rice-a-Roni, but I haven't bought it in a long time, mainly because of the sodium content. Now we can have it often! I now use brown rice and ww pasta always. A really versatile recipe. Submitted by:

So I'm guessing if you make it as presented and not according to the breakdown (chicken breast) the calorie count is actually 55 calories less than what is listed? Submitted by:

Sounds delish but I was sceptical on the protein count when therei s only chicken stock. Check out View full nutritional breakdown of Parmesan Rice & Pasta Pilaf calories by ingredient under the nutrition facts. The protein count will be way down since it is calculated on chicken breast not broth. Submitted by:

Yum! I'm always looking for rice that isn't loaded with sodium, and this fits the bill, for sure. We'll be eating this tonight! Submitted by:

Good news. On the nutritional count, chicken breast is listed instead of chicken broth so there is a difference of 42.2 calories
per serving.

other than lower sodium than the rice-a-roni, this is not a healthy dish - it's just flavored white carbs Submitted by:

I have a question. The recipe calls for 1.25 cups hot chicken stock. In the calorie breakdown of ingredients it list "55 calories of Chicken Breast, no skin...)" not chicken stock. This affects the nutritional information (cals, sodium, protein...) Could you please update with correct info? Thanks Submitted by:

Haven't tried this yet, but I will. My hubby loves the San Francisco treat, but I won't buy it because of the sodium content. Now he can have it any time he wants.! Submitted by:

This is good for a change of pace from the regular plain rice and not too many more calories. Submitted by:

Sounds good. I think I'll stir in some grilled chicken and make it a meal with added protein. Submitted by:
