                         for the dressing:

    3      tablespoons   white-wine vinegar
    4      tablespoons   fresh lemon juice
    1 1/2  tablespoon    curry powder
    3      tablespoons   bottled mango chutney
      2/3  cups          olive oil
      3/4  cups          sour cream
    3      tablespoons   water

                         for the wild rice mixture:
    2 1/2  cups          wild rice -- rinsed
    6 1/2  cups          water
    2      teaspoons     salt
    1      tablespoon    white-wine vinegar
    2      tablespoons   olive oil
    1      bunch         scallions including the green part -- chopped
    (about 3/4
                         -- cup)
    1      cup           golden raisins
    6      whole         smoked boneless chicken breasts (about --
                         -- 31/2 to 4 pounds)
                         if desired -- available at some
                         -- butcher shops
                         and specialty food shops
    3      cups          mache (lamb’s-lettuce) -- washed well and
                         -- spun dry
 Make the dressing: In a blender or food processor blend the garlic,
 the vinegar, the lemon juice, the curry powder, the chutney, salt and
 pepper to taste until the mixture is smooth. With the motor running
 add the oil in a stream, add the sour cream and the water, adding
 additional water if necessary to reach the desired consistency, and
 blend the dressing until it is combined well. Transfer the dressing to
 a small bowl and stir in the coriander. the dressing may be made 1 day
 in advance and kept covered chilled.
 Make the wild rice mixture: In a large heavy saucepan combine the wild
 rice with the water and the salt and simmer it, covered, for 45 to 50
 minutes, or until it is absorbed. Transfer the wild
 rice to a large bowl and add the vinegar, the oil, and salt and pepper
 to taste. Toss the mixture well and let is cool completely. The wild
 rice mixture may be prepared up to this point 1 cay in advance and
 kept covered and chilled. Stir in the scallions and the raisins.
 Cut the chicken into 3/4-inch pieces. Spoon the wild rice mixture onto
 one side of a large shallow serving dish, arrange the chicken on the
 other half, and arrange the mache decoratively down the middle. Serve
 the dressing separately. (Alternatively, the wild rice mixture, the
 chicken, and the dressing may be tossed together in a large serving
 bowl and garnished with the mache.)
