I needed a recipe for a potluck in a hurry. All I had on hand was some leftover Rice A Roni from one of the family size boxes. I added chopped leftover chicken, grapes, mandarin oranges, marinated artichokes a bit of mayo, a thinly sliced stalk of celery, curry powder and some slivered almonds. Now it's one of my go to summer salads!

Prepare a regular box of chicken flavored Rice A Roni according to package directions. While the Rice A Roni is cooking, cut up a chicken breast into bite size cubes, halve the green grapes, thinly slice 1 stalk of celery, drain the mandarin oranges and marinated artichoke hearts. Reserve 2 tbsp of the marinated artichoke oil. In a large bowl, add the cooked Rice a Roni and the rest of the ingredients. TASTE! Adjust seasonings to your taste!! Some folks like more curry powder while others just like a little hint of it. If using a large FAMILY size box of Rice A Roni double the rest of the ingredients. It's a very forgiving recipe. Refrigerate.
