    After finishing this dish, I had a few thoughts on how to improve and made some changes. First, I think they switched the rice and chicken stock measurements. It should be 1-1/2 cups of rice to two cups of chicken stock. Otherwise it is way too dry. I added 8 oz of sliced fresh mushrooms toward the end of cooking the chicken. I also felt that the ***** cheese was too overwhelming and tangy. I think 2 oz of ***** cheese and 1/4 cup light sour ***** may be more balanced. It could even be omitted altogether if you're not looking for a creamy version. I also reduced the spinach to 6 oz, which was plenty.

    Very good, but I felt that after cooking the rice, it was too dry. I increased the chicken broth to two cups and it was creamy like the recipe description.

    Looks good but when do you use the Italian Roasted Red Pepper Dressing and how many tomatoes do you use?
