Fruity Chicken and Rice Salad


2 cups rice, cooked & cooled
1 medium baked chicken breast, diced
1/3 stalk celery (including leaves), diced
1/3 cup dried cranberries
1/4 cup diced red bell peppers (optional)
zest & juice from one orange
1/4 cup rice vinegar
1/4 cup canola oil
3 tsp sugar (optional)
1 tsp dried mustard powder (optional)
to taste salt and pepper

In a medium bowl, combine the canola oil, vinegar, mustard, sugar, salt and pepper. Add the orange zest and juice, celery and peppers and stir. Add the chicken and rice and mix well. Stir in the cranberries, then refrigerate until ready to serve.

This makes a really good breakfast, since it's fruity but still has protein in it. You could also omit the chicken and make it a vegetarian meal.

  3. If you need assistance with a recipe or ingredient substitution, post on our Food & Cooking support forums. You will receive personal help to alter a recipe to make it allergy-free for your child’s needs.
