Place rice and cold water in pot with lid, cook covered until ready. Then uncover and let the rice cool down.

In meantime fry diced chicken breast if used. Rehydrate also raisins placing them in a cup of hot water for couple of minutes, then drain through the strainer and leave aside.

In a salad bowl combine rice, raisins, corn, pineapple, beans, mayonnaise, soured cream and optionally chicken. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

Serve at room temperature or cooled down.

Taste good itself or as a side dish with chicken, if already not included in the salad.
