    1.5 carbs per serving didn't look right, so I entered all the ingredients in the recipe calculator and it came out different -less calories and more carbs, etc. I tried it and it's good. My hubby had to add stuff to his rice (chinese mustard and sweet and sour sauce) but I liked it. : - 4/21/12

    I made this using chicken broth instead of water and left off the parsley. Super yummy! - 4/9/11

  • I had this same thing at Ruby Tuesday as a side instead of fries, and they put shredded cheese on top. That was definitely the deal maker! Try it with cheese on top! - 3/15/09
