i just finished making this for my family, i did also changed the recipe but not ny adding things but rather leaving things out. reason being i have two little ones that dont like "weird" things in their food. i went with regular oil, powdered onion and garlic, and only carrots. i did use chicken broth i never have and it made a BIG difference. i used skinless chicken breast cut into small squares and my two PICKY eater gobbled it all up. two big thumbs up.
