Updated December 12, 2016

Ingredients

Wild Rice

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped shallots
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh sage leaves
  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1 carton (32 oz) Progresso™ chicken broth
  • 2 cups uncooked wild rice

Toppings

  • 2 cups baby arugula leaves
  • 2 cups shredded rotisserie chicken
  • 2 unpeeled Bartlett pears, halved, cored and diced
  • 1/4 cup crumbled blue cheese
  • 1/2 cup toasted walnuts
  • 1/4 cup dried cranberries
  • 1/2 cup Annie’s™ balsamic vinaigrette

Steps

  • 1
    In 4-quart saucepan, heat oil over medium heat. Add shallots, sage and red pepper flakes; cook 3 to 4 minutes, stirring occasionally, until shallots are tender. Stir in broth and rice. Heat to boiling, stirring occasionally; reduce heat to medium-low. Cover and cook 50 to 55 minutes or until rice is tender and most liquid is absorbed; let stand, covered, 5 minutes.
  • 2
    Divide wild rice mixture among 4 bowls. Top with arugula, chicken, pears, blue cheese, walnuts and cranberries. Serve with dressing.

Expert Tips

  • Try substituting baby spinach or baby mixed greens for the arugula in this recipe.
  • Different kinds of wild rice cook at different rates and sometimes require slightly more or less liquid.
  • If your wild rice is tender, but there is still liquid in the pan, drain before serving.
  • To toast walnuts, sprinkle in ungreased heavy skillet. Cook over medium heat 5 to 7 minutes, stirring frequently until nuts begin to brown, then stirring constantly until nuts are light brown.
