I don't really eat chicken salad....But,k
I don't like chicken salad. Cold chicken is not my thing, I don't eat a cold turkey sandwich after thanksgiving either. But, I like rice and I like mandarin oranges so I thought that this was worth a try. And I am really glad that I did. It is really simple and doesn't take much time. there was a lot left, and the hubby made it disappear. I really like my "Gooseberry Patch" cookbook. It really comes in handy!!
Orange-Wild Rice Chicken Salad
Heads up! This isn't your ordinary chicken salad..it's better! This salad boasts wild rice, sugar snap peas and mandarin oranges.
6-oz. pkg. long grain and wild rice, cooked
2 c. cooked chicken breast, shredded (I cubbed them)
1 c. sugar snap peas, trimmed (I used frozen and I used the entire bag)
15 oz. can mandarin oranges, drained (I couldn't find 15, so I found 19.5 and used them all)
1.2 c honey-Dijon salad dressing (I couldn't find this so I used honey mustard salad dressing and added Dijon)
Combine all ingredients in a large bowl; mix well. Chill until serving time. Serves 4.
(or if your hubby decides that he likes it serves 2).
