    This could be lower in sodium by using either or a combination of Herb Ox SODIUM FREE broth boullions or 50% LESS lower sodium broth, also use the LOWER sodium 98% Fat Free condensed Cream of Chicken soup. It does look really good, will try. - 4/1/09

    I thought tis a great recipe. I used additional vegetables peas, carrots, mushrooms (canned) and Canned chickenbreast from Costco along with its broth as part of the broth. Also I usually fix a lot of rice & freeze it; so, I just used some of it for the rice & did not add water unless little neede - 2/11/17
