Fruity Chicken & Rice Salad

READY IN: 1hr 30mins
Recipe by HokiesMom

From Minute Rice pamphlet. I love the mixture of the brown rice with it's nutty flavor and the sweetness of the grapes and raisins and then adding the chicken - well it is a very healthy meal. Note: Allow at least one hour of refrigeration before serving!

This was very good. I made as stated except that I changed the oil to 1 teaspoon and used water to make up the difference. I used this as a "lunch" salad for the week and the only bad thing I have to say is that the rice sucked up all the dressinig and the salad was a little on the dry side. I just put in a dash of blasamic vinegar just before eating and it was fine. Thanks for posting.
