Meanwhile, preheat a medium skillet over medium-high, then coat with cooking spray.

    Those who think this a "lot of calories" are perhaps forgetting this would be your main dish. Your main dish would have more calories and bulk than say your fruit or vegetables; which if you are on Weight Watchers are considered as free or 0 points. What do you want? Everything isn't zero calorie.. - 1/23/13

    Delish! And for you who are condemning the carbs - remember the brown rice and WHOLE WHEAT bread crumbs are the good carbs. Full of the energy you need, keeps you fuller longer and should get several servings per day. Calories are minimum - 360 for a MEAL, remember, not a side dish! - 1/23/13

    Can lower the carbs by grating a head of cauliflower and this veggie version of rice can easily be confused with rice and better source of antioxidants, vitamin c, iron & potassium - 1/23/13

    I skipped the bread crumbs. Used more broth. Cut the rice down. It has lots of protein. I used regular carrots and frozen peas. Added mushrooms. No bread, less rice reduced the carbs. It was very good. Might try with salmon. - 1/23/13

    I found it to be rather dry, not creamy as stated. The taste is very good, but next time I'll cut down on the rice and perhaps add more broth to the mix. - 1/23/13

    I don't like package rice. I grew up in Hawaii, and the first kitchen experience I and most of my peers had was cooking rice. I made this with leftover cooked brown rice, and I used Sam's club Canned Chicken Breast in water. It was very fast and very tasty. - 2/5/13

    This sounds OK but looks extremely dry! If I make this I will use have the rice and add more broth and skip the bread crumbs completely. Looks like alot of calories too and not much nuitrution. - 1/23/13

  • Perfect! This is a great dish for the whole family!Bet it would be good with canned tuna or salmon and a little green or red pepper. - 3/31/13

  • FYI: Your picture looks like it was made with white rice. I plan to make this casserole, except I will cook my brown rice first. I don't like "instant" rice, the texture is off somehow. Our family were big rice eaters growing up and I know what "real" rice tastes like. Everything else looks good. - 2/26/13
