Friday Recipe: Chicken and Rice L'orange

My mom forwarded this to me last week from Better Recipes. I think it came out pretty tasty! OK, the only marmalade I had was sweet orange marmalade, so it was really sweet, but otherwise the chicken was moist, the recipe easy, and I had all the ingredients in my kitchen! Next time I'd definitely use regular.


1 cup Uncooked Rice
1 cup Orange Juice
1 cup Water
1 tsp Salt
⅓ cup Golden Raisins
3 Tbsp Butter, divided
¼ cup sliced Almonds (didn't use them, don't like the flavor of almonds in cooking)
4 Boneless, skinless chicken breast halves
¼ cup Orange Marmalade
¼ cup sliced Green Onions


  1. Combine rice, orange juice, water and salt in a 2- to 3-quart saucepan. Heat to boiling; stir once or twice. Reduce heat; cover and simmer 15 minutes. When rice is done, stir in the raisins.
  2. While rice is cooking, melt 1 tablespoon butter in large skillet over medium-high heat. Add almonds and cook and stir until golden, about 2 to 3 minutes. Remove almonds and set aside.
  3. Melt remaining 2 tablespoons butter in skillet. Add chicken; cook on both sides until no pink remains. Add orange marmalade to skillet and stir to coat chicken. To serve, spoon rice onto plate, top with chicken. Sprinkle with toasted almonds and green onions.
