Thai Style Wild Rice

This thai style wild rice is loosely based off of a winning dish from the 2018 MN Wild Rice Recipe contest. I had the chance to eat that chicken thai wild rice as part of the yearly conference that we have with our growers. I enjoyed it so much that I knew I had to […]

Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup with Egg Noodles
