    Stir-fried chicken with asparagus served over wild or long-grain rice. Quick and tasty. This is great in spring when fresh asparagus is in season. There's no reason you couldn't substitute sugar snap peas or another vegetable; just don't fry them for more than a couple of minutes.

    A very luxurious and filling salad that is nice for a special picnic or light summer lunch. Wild rice is tossed with a Dijon and herb dressing, chicken, celery, spring onion, parsley, sugar snap peas and toasted almonds. A real treat. Best to make this a day before serving.
