Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 sweet onion, chopped
  • kosher salt and pepper
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced or grated
  • 6 ounces cremini mushrooms
  • 2 ounces wild mushrooms
  • 1 Honeycrisp apple, thinly sliced
  • 2 tablespoons fresh chopped thyme, plus more for serving
  • 2 1/2 cups low sodium chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup white wine or more chicken broth
  • 2 cups wild rice
  • 1/2-1 pounds boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into bite size pieces
  • 2 cups baby spinach
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded Gruyère cheese

Instructions

  • 1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. 
    2. Melt the butter and olive oil in a large, oven safe skillet over medium heat. Add the onion and cook for 5-8 minutes, stirring often until the onion is soft. Season with salt and pepper. Add the garlic, the cremini mushrooms and the wild mushrooms, cook another 5 minutes or until the mushrooms are caramelized. Stir in the apples and thyme and cook another minute longer. 
    3. Pour in the 2 cups chicken broth and the wine and bring to a boil over high heat. Stir in the rice and chicken, cover and reduce the heat to low. Simmer for 45-55 minutes or until the rice is cooked, if needed, add the remaining 1/2-1 cup broth if the rice feels a little hard still. Remove from the heat and stir in the spinach. 
    4. Sprinkle the cheese over top the rice and transfer to the oven. Bake for 10-15 minutes or until the cheese has melted. Remove from the oven and serve with fresh thyme. Enjoy!
