I don't remember where this recipe originated. But I know that I love it. It is one of those combinations that hit the notes of sweet, crunchy and citrus in a smooth light dressing. The wild rice cooks gently on its own. By using a rotisserie chicken, the assembly is quick and easy. —lakelurelady

Frozen Orange Juice Concentrate, Thawed
Whisk together mayonnaise and orange juice concentrate in a large bowl. Add chicken, nuts, cranberries, orange, celery, salt and pepper and mix well. Chill, covered, at least 1 hour.
Rinse rice in a fine sieve under running cold water, then drain. Bring water to a boil in a heavy saucepan and stir in rice. Simmer, covered, until rice is tender, about 40 to 50 minutes. Drain rice and cool, then stir into chicken salad and serve over greens.
I have been a serious cook from the time I first took an introductory course in French Cooking from Irena Chalmers, a cookbook author and instructor at the CIA. My first love is French cooking but I also value the importance of fresh local ingredients. The freshest ingredients seasoned right and prepared with love will result in the perfect meal.
