Very yummy, easy and fast. This rice is great with barbequed chicken, or pork chops, or just about anything. Very mildly orange, and fluffy! Even my husband likes it! Adapted from Southern Living 1981. Prep time includes grating rind and squeezing juice.

This was great rice, made it exactly as written. Served it with a balsamic chicken dish and it worked so well. Next time, I think I'll saute some shallots or onions in butter and toss them in during the last few minutes of simmering. Thank you for posting this recipe, I'll be having this often.
