This is really tasty. I used a brown rice/wild rice blend so had to cook the rice longer. I had extra rice so baked it in a small casserole the last 1/2 hour with the hens. Would be good with pecans in stead of almonds, also, and instead of mushrooms, maybe some dried cranberries. Made for My 3 Chefs game.
