DIRECTIONS

  • Cook the rice according to package directions(and then add about 10 minutes longer) Make sure it is soft.
  • Drain and cool.
  • Cook chicken breasts either in water or you can bake them. (About 15-20 minutes). I cut the chicken in to bit sizes and boil. Most pieces float when they are done.
  • Cut sliced water chestnuts into small pieces.
  • Drain mandarin oranges.
  • Mix all together with mayo. Use enough mayo to cover everything. Sorry I don't remember how much mayo exactly. After refrigerating you may need to add a bit more. It soaks into the rice.
  • Most of this recipe is to taste. How much you like of something.
  • Refrigerate until cold or overnight.
  • Cashews-mix in just before serving--whole cashews are the best. Put in how many you like. I usually put in 3/4 a can. The cashews are a very important part of this recipe. They add the salt and crunch to this recipe.
