    This is really good! I substituted a can of chicken broth for the water and bouillon because of the sodium content. I'll definitely be making this again and again. - 12/22/08

    This is great, it's quick, easy, and great tasting. I use CKN Broth instead of bullion, reduced sodium fat free zesty italian dressing, and Kroger brand whole grain boil in bag brown rice (10 min), I also add crookneck squash, zucchini, Aspragus, onion, red orange & yellow bell peppers and mushrooms - 3/10/10
