IntroductionI created this dish for dinner one day when I was pressed for time with ingredients I had on hand and it was an instant hit! A low-carb delight as is, but you can serve over wide, whole-wheat noodles or brown rice if you are not watching carbs.

This was super - I added some extra ingredients: parsley, garlic powder, dijon mustard and sage to the broth. Then I sauteed muchrooms and onions added them. When the chicken was nearly done, I added some broccoli as well. My five-year old and my picky husband inhaled it! Thanks! - 12/17/08

Sounds like some great additions! I didn't have onions or garlic the day I made this, so next time I will use them!
