    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

    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

    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

    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
