“A classic chicken and rice dish with a little twist of wild rice and apples for a hearty, warming fall or winter supper. We used a seasoned packaged wild rice blend, but plain long grain and wild rice should work fine. If you're using plain, you may want to adjust your seasonings slightly, as your salt content will be lower.”
