IntroductionI found this recipe on spark, but the nutrition info seemed off. I included counts for 1 ln raw chicken breast and uncooked minute brown rice, so this should be more accurate.

well, I don't take complete credit for the recipe because I only re-posted for more accurate nutritional info. However, it was a hit at our house. I might suggest adding some cayenne to jazz it up a bit. You could at least leave a suggestion for others on how you would make it more flavorful.
