(I used left-over rotissere chicken today, and Uncle Ben's rice. I always use broth + water (50-50) to cook my rice, and cut back on salt. If you are cooking your own chicken, use the broth from the poaching for more flavor. I usually serve this w/a green veggie, and a jello salad. This one is easy and good.
