  • You can control how many this serves quite easily (if you like one particular vegetable more than the other, use more of that or even add other veggies you love!), but if you follow the recipe and use 2 chicken breasts it will definitely serve 4-6 and possibly more (depending upon how much rice people eat with it and what you consider a full serving).
