Wild Rice and Asparagus Chicken

Wild rice is grown in paddies in Lake of the Woods County. A beautiful plant and a great taste. Harvest is on now.



Can substitute snow peas or another vegetable; just don’t fry them for more than a couple of minutes on the first go-round.

  • 1 whole boneless, skinless chicken breast, cubed
  • 2 cups wild rice, cooked
  • ½ pound fresh asparagus/sweet peas
  • 3 tablespoons hoisin sauce
