  • You don't mention the chicken broth in the ingredients list. Is this included in the nutrition info? How much do you use? Please clarify. - 4/27/11

    Chicken broth is included in the recipe, but it is a small amount. I also use low sodium/low fat broth. And if sodium is a concern, 3/4 cup water can be used instead.

    I use 1/2 cup or so. I use the lowest sodium broth I can find. If sodium is a concern, you can substitude water instead.
