    There's no possible way the recipe, as listed, is only 187 calories. There is definitely at least one major ingredient not included in the calculation. Just 1/2 cup of brown rice is over 100 calories and 1/4 lb of chicken is also around 125 calories, so it's well over 200 calories per serving. - 4/25/11

    Even after losing the broth and going down to 10oz of chicken, it still says 236 calories. I have no idea how it could possibly be only 129 calories. - 1/28/11

    I made over the recipe with 12 ounces of chicken and 2 cups of brown rice and for four servings it's about 265 calories for one serving. - 6/6/12

    This was really good. Tried it without the chicken broth the 2nd time, and without the thyme both times cause it wouldn't mince, and I actually liked it much more brothless. The garlic flavor really came out w/o the broth and was delicious. Didn't bother with the rice the second time either. - 8/22/11

  • Love it! The first time I added more garlic because of the comments and realized it didn't need more. The second time I made it as written except I doubled the broccoli and this is how I'll continue making it. Quick, easy, delicious week night meal. - 5/2/12

  • I made this last night and I really liked it. It was a quick meal to prepare, and I thought it had good flavor. Next time I may add a little more garlic. This was a really satisfying meal, will definately be making this again. - 3/31/11

  • This was an easy and quick recipe. Very tasty and for those of you who thought it was flavourless, add your own spices as you go, you know what you like. I put in 8 cloves of garlic (I love garlic) and instead of pepper I used spiced mixed pepper. It was delicious. - 1/22/11

  • This was easy and quick but I wanted more garlic taste. I used the pre-chopped garlic (more than called for also) and this may be something that needed the real thing. - 1/16/11
