While this may appear to be just another carbon copy wild rice recipe, there is one key difference...you don't have to cook your chicken ahead of time! Good enough for company or a potluck, but really very simple and total comfort food. It was a big hit in our family and will be a keeper for sure! The base recipe was a Silver award winner from Yankee Magazine recipe contest submitted by Glenna Anderson Muse, with a lot of changes.
