This is a recipe that I found on another site and tweaked to suit my family's tastes. Even though I've made some changes to the recipe, I would like to give credit to allie0206 for posting the original recipe.

We prefer brown rice over the long-grain white rice--so I made several adjustments. I cooked the brown rice first in the chicken broth with the onion. When the rice was almost done, I browned the chicken strips in a non-stick pan lightly coated with olive oil. After the chicken was done, I added the orange juice and zest to the skillet along with 2 tsp cornstarch. It made a nice glaze to serve over the chicken and rice. Thanks for the idea. We certainly enjoyed it.
