Orange Rice

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by Amanda Beth

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.
