Came across this recipe in Better Homes and Gardens magazine from January 1980. This recipe is so easy! I added a couple of optional additions.

Cooking of optional rice, is done ahead, and is not counted in cooking time. If using instant rice, you could do it, while prepping vegetables.

  3. Makes 4 servings. Each serving about 80 calories, without rice and broth or juice.
