Hot Chicken and Rice Salad

by Laura

This hot chicken and rice salad is a recipe that I adapted from one that I originally got from Fred Wix (also known as the Gabby Gourmet).  He use to do cooking segments on a local news show at noon.

This is a recipe I’ve been making for at least 10 years.  It’s good comfort food and a great way to use up leftover rice. The recipe calls for chicken but leftover Thanksgiving turkey would also work well.

Mushrooms are also included in this. Not everyone likes mushrooms at my home. So, when I make it I just reduce the amount and mix it in to part of the mixture.

I tried the Hot Chicken and Rice salad and it was wonderful!!! The only changes I made was to saute the celery and mushrooms before adding the other ingredients. Even my pickest eater had seconds tonight! Thank you for such easy, family-friendly recipes. 🙂
