Oriental Chicken-Rice Salad

This is a potentially great salad that looks like it could make about 8 servings. You can skip the extra salt and use low sodium soy sauce, plus reduce the amount of oil if you like.  The oil, salt, soy sauce and sesame seeds are used to make a kind of a dressing that flavors the rice. In a pinch if you don’t have sesame seeds but you do have sesame oil, use that to provide the the sesame flavor. Serve this at a pot luck or sunny Saturday afternoon lunch.

Secondly, you will need an additional 1 1/4 cups water that is not listed on the recipe.
