Southern Chicken and Rice Salad
"This light Southern Chicken and Rice Salad is a satisfying dish that's perfect for easy summer dinners or a fancier lunch with the ladies. The marinated chicken, sweet fruit, crunchy almonds, and hearty brown rice, offer a variety of flavors and textures for the ultimate crowd-pleasing dish! I basically just borrowed all of my favorite components from a classic chicken salad, but added brown rice as the base. The end result is a one dish meal that's filling and delicious, with layers of texture for happy tastebuds! It's the perfect meal to bring to a summer potluck or picnic, because it feeds a crowd and you can prepare the rice salad in advance. Whether you're a Southern lady who loves to host friends for lunch, or a busy mom who's just trying to get dinner prepped during nap time, I know that you're going to love this healthy recipe!"
