This is a wonderful recipe from my mom. It is very nutritious and simple to make.
If you don't have the time to cook the wild rice yourself, you can use canned.
I believe the brand I have used in the past is Canoe, and it was good.
This recipe serves 6 generously as an entree.
You can also omit the chicken and serve it as a side dish.
Garnish with lettuce leaves.
|Rinse 1 1/2 cups of wild rice well.|
|Add the rice to 6 cups of boiling salted water.|
Stir and return to a boil. Turn heat to low and cover.

|Drain rice and cool.|

1/4 tsp pepper and 1/4 cup rice vinegar in a small food processor and blend well.
