Cooked according to recipe but used different brand of broth. Turned out amazing! Will definitely cook again!

This recipe was wonderful. I added an extra packet of the chicken broth, peppers to everything. I will using this again.

1 used 2 large chicken breasts and a bullion cube in water instead of a packet. This works great over rice. Will make again.

I was actually quite surprised at how good and flavorful this recipe was. And it's very healthy. I didn't have the concentrate broth packets so I just made a very concentrated broth w/ buillio...

Great recipe. Trader Joe's carries a low sodium chicken broth concentrate that is delicious--more intense, less salty flavor.

i expected more sauce in a recipe like this and it doesn't make much. Pretty good and halthy enough but not sure if I'll make again.

tasty and easy to make. I only used one packet of concentrated chicken broth (to cut down on the salt) and as I browned the chicken I sprinkled salt-free Lemon Pepper seasoning on the chicken.

I used chicken stock and thickened it at the end of cooking with corn starch. Yum!

Perfection. I subbed asparagus for the broc & added lemon zest. Then used cornstarch to thicken the sauce. My mouth was happy!
