I think this was the actual meal that snagged my husband 22 years ago..I make this for my 11 year old and she loves it. I keep the seasonings to a minimal because that is how the kids like it. You can add whatever seasonings that you want, any cooked rice. It is versatile. I like it on the stove because it is not greasy like in the oven. ENJOY.
