rice with chicken, cashews and gloden raisins

  • 2 cups white rice, cooked
  • 1/4 cup chicken, torn into bite sized pieces
  • 1/4 cup halved cashews
  • 1/4 cup golden raisins
  • fresh curly parsley, chopped
  • Mrs. Dash seasoning

Combine first five ingredients. We used leftover chicken and we nuked it in a little chicken stock because we had some of that left over. Season to taste with Mrs. Dash and fresh ground pepper and kosher salt.

The dish: Kim really believes that she can't cook, which is not the case, and as a result she's a little pensive in the red room. I was working late and we had some leftover chicken so we planned on her putting this dish together and it came out great- the mix of flavors really worked. We normally just buy rice from the local Chinese place, but she used Uncle Ben's enriched boil in the bag and the texture was perfect. I enjoyed it cold the next day for lunch- this was a great way to stretch a little left over chicken.
