Chicken-and-Wild Rice Salad

    Was looking to make a non-mayonnaise-based chicken salad I could pack for lunch at work. I bought a rotisserie chicken to use, but only got a little over 2 cups of chicken out of it so that's all I used. Plus, the Uncle Ben's rice I bought is a 6 oz. pack - the only size available. Has decent flavor. Next time I'd likely make with real wild rice instead. Healthier and tastier. The ready to serve rice is a bit sticky in this. I would also probably make a bit more dressing ... and make sure I had more chicken!

    Delicious. Instead of the watercress I served it over mixed greens. Perfect for a hot day.

    Quick weeknight meal. I used arugala instead of the watercress b/c the store was out of watercress and it was very tasty. Even my picky DH liked it!!

    This is delicious and my family loves it! I use spinach instead of watercress.
