Title: Chicken, wild rice and pecan salad in romaine spears
Categories: Appetizers, Poultry sal
Yield: 12 Servings
6 c Chicken broth
8 oz Wild rice
2 1/2 lb Roasted chicken; skinned,
-boned, meat cut, into
1 Red bell pepper chopped
2 bn Arugula chopped
1/4 c Green onions; chopped
3 tb Ons; soy sauce
3 tb Ons; rice vinegar
3 tb Ons; sesame oil
2 c Pecans; toasted and chopped
3 Heads romaine lettuce
Bring broth to a boil in medium saucepan. Add rice and bring to a
boil. Reduce heat to low, cover and cook until just tender, about 50
minutes. Drain well.
Transfer the rice to a large bowl. Mix in chicken, bell pepper,
arugula and green onions. Mix soy sauce, vinegar and oil in small
bowl. Pour over salad and mix to coat. Season with salt and pepper.
(Can be made 4 hours ahead. Cover and chill.)
Mix nuts into salad. Place salad in center of platter. Reserve outer
romaine leaves for another use. Arrange inner leaves on platter around
COMMENTS: This is a very versatile salad. You can make it without the
arugula if you can't find any; you can serve with pita crisps if you
don't want to use romaine leaves. I always cheat and buy a roasted
chicken from the deli.
