I don't know about anyone else, but I would rather make as many scratch recipes as I can. When you can't pronounce half the ingredients in some of these boxed mixes. How on earth do we know what's in it?...LOL! This is my version of chicken Rice - A - Roni...season it up to your liking...Don't like chicken? Try Beef...same concept..very yummy! My photos
