Chicken and Wild Rice Salad

Makes: 6 servings
Prep 40 mins Chill 2 hrs Grill 12 mins
Chicken and Wild Rice Salad
  • 1 6  ounce package  plain long grain and wild rice mix
  • 2/3  cup  bottled Italian salad dressing
  • 2  pounds  skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
  • 1  cup  frozen French-style green beans
  • 2 1/2  cups  packaged shredded cabbage with carrot (coleslaw mix)
  • 1 14  ounce can  artichoke hearts, drained and quartered
  •  Lettuce leaves (optional)

1. Prepare rice mix according to package directions. Transfer to a medium bowl. Cover and chill about 2 hours or until well chilled.

2. Meanwhile, remove 3 tablespoons of the salad dressing for basting chicken. Set aside remaining dressing.

3. For a charcoal grill, grill chicken on the rack of an uncovered grill directly over medium coals for 12 to 15 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink (170 degrees F), turning once halfway through grilling and brushing with the 3 tablespoons dressing during the last 2 minutes of grilling. (For a gas grill, preheat grill. Reduce heat to medium. Place chicken on grill rack over heat. Cover and grill as directed.)

4. Rinse frozen beans with cool water for 30 seconds; drain well. In a large bowl combine beans, chilled cooked rice, cabbage with carrots, and artichoke hearts. Pour the reserved dressing over rice mixture; toss gently to coat.

5. Slice chicken and serve with wild rice mixture. If desired, garnish with lettuce leaves.
