Chicken Mushroom Wild Rice Skillet

I’m going to share with you the recipe for the Chicken Mushroom Wild Rice Skillet I whipped up the other night. If you like wild rice, you will love this dish. A few things to note. Make SURE you don’t overcook your chicken. Just barely brown the outsides, and then let it cook the rest of the way in your skillet. Remove from heat as soon as the pink is gone from the center.

Drain wild rice well. Rinse if desired. Rinsing well makes the flavor much milder.
