How to Make It

Step 1

Cook the chicken in a 10-inch nonstick skillet over medium-high heat for 10 minutes or until well browned on both sides. Remove the chicken from the skillet.

Step 2

Stir the broth, orange juice, onion and rice in the skillet and heat to a boil. Reduce the heat to low. Cover and cook for 10 minutes.

Step 3

Return the chicken to the skillet. Cover and cook for 10 minutes or until the chicken is cooked though and the rice is tender. Stir in the parsley.

Recipe Tips

  • Serving Suggestion: For a special touch, cook orange slices in a nonstick skillet over medium-high heat until they're lightly browned. Serve over the chicken.
  • Ingredient Note: We develop our recipes using a 4-to 5-ounce skinless, boneless chicken breast half per serving. However, there are a range of sizes available in-store, from the butcher counter to the meat case and the freezer section. Use whichever you prefer- just follow the recipe as written above for the best result. If you're using larger chicken breasts they may require a little longer cooking time.

    I made this tonight, but used the suggestions that everyone else put on their reviews. I added garlic powder to the rice while it was steaming, and sauteed the onions also and I added grated lemon peel and it was fantastic!!!

    My family loved this recipe.

    I had to add a little more liquid. I also added orange zest to the rice and citrus blend grill seasoning the second time. It was perfect!

    Again, great with some tweaks.

    I sauteed the onions until they were a little brown before adding in the other ingredients. Also, in a separate pan, I sauteed some lemon wheels, which were a great garnish, as well as adding flavor. I (as a few others have said) added lemon juice and reduced the amount of broth slightly. Even my husband liked it!

    quick and simple...

    I put my own twist on this to add comfort food texture to it... when i add the chicken on the last step i also added some orange zest to it for a kick and then when completely done i added some can peas and a sprinkle of parm cheese and a spinkle of shredded cheddar cheese mixture!!! and presto.... instant comfort food!!!! yum!!!

    A few tweaks and its even better.

    I love this recipe, for those that are finding it bland try adding a few little extra touches. I reduce the chicken stock by a 1/4 cup and add a 1/4 cup of Lime juice to the Orange juice. I also put a little salt, pepper and garlic powder on my chicken before sauteing. This helps so much with the lack of something that it can need.
