Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Cooking grains in chicken broth adds a flavor boost, and it works well in this recipe because millet has a mild flavor that lends itself well as a background to other seasonings. A grain known for its high protein and mineral content, it’s also very easy to digest. Millet can be found in Asian markets and natural-food stores.
