This recipe is quick and easy to prepare. It is a little high in sodium. You can skip the additional salt and use low sodium chicken broth if you want/need to lower it. Typically I worry a little less about the amount of carb in my dinner meal. This one is just a bit higher than my usual (51g - 3g (fibre) = 48g) but worth it once in a while!
