      Ok, I know this is going to sound like the ultimate white trash review, but here goes. I had all the ingredients for this, was all ready to go, and then realized my husband had taken the last 2 oranges to work. Did we have frozen oj? Nooooo. But we had Sunny Delite. So I put a splash of that in with the rice and tossed in some lemon zest for good measure. Ditto for the sauce, although I left out the brown sugar because Sunny Delite is like 99 percent sugar anyway. Despite all that, the dish was excellent! The picky kindergartener ate a whole plate, which is unheard of, and DH and I loved it, too. I will make it again with real oranges someday, I promise. Or maybe not. Because Sunny Delite chicken was pretty awesome. Thanks, L!!!

      Absolutely fabulous! The orange and spice combo is just awesome! I made a couple of adjustments...for one, I cubed the chicken and sauteed for a little bit longer, and added a couple of cloves of mashed garlic. The chicken was juicy, tender, and soooo flavorful! The orange rice complimented the chicken beautifully! My whole family loved it! Thank you for a fabulous recipe, Leeannr! :)
