  3. Jane says:

    This is one of the best (and easiest!) meals I’ve made in ages. The broccoli/rotisserie chicken/cheese combo is really spectacular. I followed the recipe exactly, using bone broth and red pepper flakes. I wouldn’t change a thing! I served with a little bit of ‘Right Rice’ for some extra nutrients. This is going to be a regular dish for me going forward.

    Thanks Mia!
