Recipe by Brittany L. Chin Jones, MS, RD, LD


  • 1 box Uncle Ben’s Long Grain and Wild Rice Original
  • 2 tablespoons (29.57 milliliters) olive oil
  • 1 yellow onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 8 ounces ground chicken
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 cup sliced white mushrooms
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh rosemary
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • ¼ cup chopped fresh parsley


Prepare rice according to package directions (omit oil or butter) in a small saucepot with a lid. While the rice is cooking, heat a medium frying pan over medium heat. Add the olive oil, onion and garlic and sauté until translucent, about 2-3 minutes. Add the ground chicken and black pepper. Break up clumps of the ground meat with a spatula to create smaller, bite-size pieces. Cook, stirring frequently, until chicken is fully cooked and reaches an internal temperature of 170°F, about 8-10 minutes. Once the chicken is browned and cooked, add the mushrooms, rosemary and Worcestershire sauce. Stir to toss, cover and cook for 2-3 minutes. Remove from heat. In a large serving bowl, add the ground chicken and mushroom mixture, cooked rice and parsley, tossing to mix well. Serve while hot. Serves 4.
