Great recipe! We made once before and agreed that it needed just a touch of salt. We added a teaspoon with the broth and rice and it was perfect.

Yum! I like to think of this as rice pilaf on steroids - a simple rice pilaf chalk full of yummy chicken, sausage, artichokes, and olives. I served it with a simple salad in dijon vinaigrette on the side, which made a filling and quick weeknight meal.

This is delicious, healthy comfort food. I think the olives are not required here (save some fat), and I usually increase the other vegetables, because it's pretty meat-heavy. Also, because I prefer the texture and have the time, I will use plain old wild rice (8 ounces) and long-grain brown rice (4 ounces). I soak the wild rice while I'm preparing everything else, and I add about 20 minutes to the cooking time. This is seriously tasty, and, as a side note, I've prepared it several times for friends recovering from surgery and chemotherapy, and it's well-tolerated. Savory but not overpowering.
