  1. Place the rice and water in a saucepan and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer until water is absorbed, about 45 minutes. Set aside to cool.
  2. To make the dressing, whisk together the oil, lemon juice, soy sauce, ginger, and teriyaki sauce in a small bowl. Season with salt and pepper.
  3. In a large bowl, mix together the cooked rice and chicken. Stir in celery, water chestnuts, mushrooms, green onion, and red pepper. Mix with the dressing to coat. Cover and refrigerate 8 hours or overnight. Toss gently before serving.

I think this is good BUT with some changes. I used long grain and wild rice, added garlic, baby spinach and crushed red pepper. I also replaced 1 tbsp of the EVOO with sesame oil. IMO - the ...

This was OK, but seemed to be missing something. I definitely think the dish improved after refrigeration, but I don't want to make it again. I tried adding cashews after eating a few bites an...
