Expert Tips

This dish would be delicious served with a rice blend. Look for one with wild and whole-grain brown rice, that doesn’t include sodium. To keep sodium low, consider making rice by substituting dry white wine or low-sodium chicken broth for half the liquid and omitting the butter and salt.
