  1. Could you substitute kale (I haven't looked at my superfood list) for the spinach?  I love the flavor it brings!

    1. In the slow cooker with the other ingredients. Be sure rice is completely submerged in liquid…place on top of veggies, under chicken.

  2. This is simply the most delicious dish I have made from your vast listing of recipes!  Love it!

  3. Yay! I just made this and its fantastic! I have my lunch for the week! Thank you so much for this recipe! 

  4. Is it possible to substitute something else for the spinach? Spinach allergy in my family, so I can't use spinach.

  5. It doesn’t say what to do with the chicken. Do you put the chicken breast whole and shred it after it’s cooked or do you cut it into cubes to cook?

  6. Are the mushrooms sliced or whole? Are the beans drained and rinsed or dump in with liquid? As someone who is not a natural cook and has to follow a recipe, I wish you were more specific.

    1. Rachel, slice the mushrooms. Drain and rinse the beans in order to remove sodium but it’s not required. Enjoy!

    1. Judi, The bouillon cubes will dissolve while cooking with everything else. Just remember to stir a few times if you do that. Otherwise, a liquid vegetable broth will work instead of the cubes and water.

        1. Judi, You can add one additional cup of chicken broth and add 1 teaspoon or so each of spices- celery salt, oregano, thyme would all be good options. You should also add a bit of salt such as 1/2 teaspoon to 1 teaspoon.

  7. Would brown rice work instead of wild rice? I don’t have wild rice on hand. I’ve loved every recipe that I’ve tried on your site so far.

  8. Hi – can you substitute frozen broccoli florets for the fresh broccoli? If yes, would thawed be the best way to go? LOVE your site. Thank you. Will you be updating some of your recipes to SmartPoints?

    1. Penny, You can put the florets in frozen. Yes, we have plans to update to SmartPoints but it will take some time.
