This wild rice side dish can serve with other side dish or entree.  So, bear this in mind.  Here are a few recommendations for you:

A lot of my fans like clean eating.  Because of this reason, I purposefully stay away from chicken broth.  That means less preservatives and less sodium.  But please feel free to substitute water with the broth per your preference.
