  • HI bnrudy,
    I think the user was suggesting that you serve this with rice, rather than stating that the recipe has rice in it. Hope that helps- happy cooking!

  • why would you serve this with rice when it has potatoes, toooo much starch!!!

  • I agree with vareyann. Also I would use low sodium beef broth instead of the onion soup mix.

  • I so agree with everyone here before me. Why add rice? I would add tomatoes, green beans and maybe carrots.... not two starches. Also, I do not ever use my large oven except for mulitiple food dishes at the same time. For economy I would use the crock pot or do it very low on the top of the stove, using one burner only.

  • I want to know why you would serve this dish with rice, why not a green salad or a vegetable?

  • Rice and potatoes are too many starches together. Sounds good though

  • I'm trying it tonight, but won't be adding rice. I will add carrots to the pot, though. I wonder, could it be cooked in the slow cooker if you used legs instead of breasts? It would be a bonus on busy days.

  • I agree with the others, why would you even think to add rice when you have potatoes? Adding a salad or a another vegetable would make it a great meal.

  • I wonder why so many people have
    add things to a recipe.

  • Rice was just a suggestion. I would serve fruit with this and make a complete meal.

  • This is the same recipe I use for my pot roasts and I add carrots and to the pan.

    Rice & Potatoes? Way too much starch. Need more non starch veggies with this.

  • Adding rice is too much starch. How about a vegetable?
