    I absolutely loved this! It was sooo good. I also made it with brown rice. When I put in the broccoli, I also added chopped white onions, water chesnuts, and like a tablespoon of minced garlic. I couldn't get enough of this! Definitely will be making this again... - 10/1/09

    This was incredible! I used brown rice to make it healthier, so I had to cook it a little longer, but it was so good. I can't wait to make it again. I may add more veggies next time as well. Thanks for the great recipe! - 9/20/09

    THIS WAS DELICIOUS!! I haven't given any recipes 5 stars, this one's a keeper. I just used the lowfat italian dressing I had and added leftover brown rice to the broccoli. I did have to add another cup of chicken broth. So good. Definitely a keeper. - 5/5/10
