This recipe looks very interesting. I like the way you add in the chicken noodle soup mix. I always have that at home as my son loves chicken noodles. I would rather eat rice than noodles. The rice is 'toasted' before you cook it so that should add another dimension of flavor. I'm sure this is going to be very tasty.

finnes herbs I had to look this up and from Wikipedia this is what I found with a spelling correction from Wikipedia, Fines herbes is a combination of herbs that forms a mainstay of Mediterranean cuisine. The ingredients of fines herbes are fresh parsley, chives, tarragon and chervil.[1] These "fine herbs" are not the pungent and resinous herbs that appear in a bouquet garni which, unlike fines herbes, release their flavour in long cooking. Marjoram, cress,[2] cicely[2] or lemon balm[2] may be added to fines herbes. The marjoram may be dried.
