Cook wild rice according to package directions.

Step 2

Combine cooked rice, chicken, and next 3 ingredients in a large bowl.

Step 3

Whisk together lemon juice and next 5 ingredients. Drizzle over rice mixture, tossing to coat. Stir in mint and parsley. Sprinkle with almonds. Garnish, if desired.

Really good with substitutions

August 07, 2015
I couldn't find quick cooking wild rice and I didn't want to wait an hour just to cook the wild rice. Sooo, I used uncle bens wild rice mix that takes 25 mins. It makes 2 cups of cooked rice. I couldn't imagine using 8 cups of cooked rice the recipe calls for. Way too much rice in my opinion. Two cups chicken to 2 cups cooked rice mix is a good balance. I did everything else exactly as the recipe called for. It's really good. Yum yum!
