Soak wild rice the night before. For extra crunch and texture be sure to toast the chopped nuts.

  • 1 pound wild rice, soaked in cold water overnight
  • 2 cans (13 3/4 ounces each) chicken broth
  • 1 1/3 cups toasted chopped pecans
  • 2/3 cup chopped dried apricots (1/4 pound)
  • ¼ cup raisins, chopped
  • ¼ Grand Marnier
  • ½ Tsp ground cinnamon
  • ½ Tsp leaf sage, crumbled
  • Pepper to taste

Place wild rice and chicken broth in saucepan. Cover; simmer over low heat 30 to 40 minutes, or until rice is tender and broth is absorbed. Combine rice with chopped toasted nuts, apricots, raisins, Grand Marnier, cinnamon, sage and pepper. Cool completely before using to stuff chicken breasts.
Makes about 7 cups.
*Stuffing may be made ahead of time and refrigerated up to two days or it may be frozen.
