Green Chicken Salad

1 box 6 ½ oz. Uncle Ben’s long grain and wild rice, Chicken or original
2 jars(6 oz ) marinated artichoke hearts
May substitute unmarinated and use lite Italian dressing to mix with mayo
4 green onions with tops, chopped
1/3 cup green pepper, chopped
12 stuffed olives, sliced
May substitute favorite olives and add pimiento if desired
1/3 cup mayo
1 tsp curry powder (I use 1 T)
3 chicken breasts, cooked and shredded(or diced)

Cook rice according to instructions omitting butter. COOL. Drain artichoke hearts, reserving marinade to mix with mayo. Cut artichoke into bite-sized pieces. Mix curry powder with mayo and reserved marinade. Combine all and chill, preferably overnight.


  1. Gluten free:
    Do NOT use Uncle Ben's rice. I purchased gluten free rice and added spices (onion powder, minced onion, garlic powder and parsley)

    check your marinated artichokes

    do not use any mixed dressing unless you specifically check the label

  2. Tip: When the temp is over a 100, save yourself some grief and purchase a rotisserie chicken from your local grocery store, deli department.
