Chicken and Wild Rice Supreme

This family favorite is something I often make as a "carry-in dinner" for someone who has just come home from the hospital after surgery, or for new parents after coming home from the hospital with a new baby. It's delicious comfort food that I like to serve with a green vegetable (or lemon basil buttered carrots - another recipe of mine!) and a fruit salad.
