Chicken Satay With Orange Scented Jasmine Rice

"Another recipe from Rachael Ray! I changed it around a little to make it easier for me. This is easy and really tasty! Plus it is colorful and pretty. Doug liked the chicken, but wasn’t too crazy about the peanut sauce on the veggies. Garnish with cucumber and orange slices."

Ready In:




  • Combine zest, water and rice in rice cooker. Set to cook. It will be done about the same time as the stir fry if you do this step first.
  • For stir-fry, heat a large nonstick skillet over high heat. Add chicken, garlic and onion, stir-fry 3 minutes. Add remaining veggies and stir-fry 5 minutes more.
  • Combine all ingredients for sauce together in a microwave safe bowl, stirring the sauce until all ingredients are combined. Microwave for 30-45 seconds. Stir well to combine.
  • Combine the sauce with the chicken and vegetables and serve over hot rice.

  1. The perfect combination of sweet, spice, and heat - a real winner, and there are some mighty picky eaters in our house! Substitutions made to use what was on hand: 2 Tbs. dried orange peel for zest of 1 orange in the rice; 1/8 tsp garlic powder for garlic cloves; 1 tsp onion powder for onion; 9 baby carrots, sliced for shredded carrot in the stir fry; 1 tsp ground ginger for the grated ginger root; a dash of garlic powder for the garlic clove in the satay sauce. Used brown jasmine rice instead of white and cooked for 35-40 minutes as directed on package. Thanks for sharing!
  2. Totally worth all of 5 stars! This was great! The satay sauce really pops up the chicken! I just used regular rice and a pack of frozen stir fry veggies. I'll be making this sauce again soon!
  3. I'm only rating the orange jasmine rice, as I made it to go along with pork with peanut sauce (that I'd already made) I LOVED the orange had a great flavor; much better than plain rice (in my opinion) Thanks for an easy recipe; I think it would be equally as good with lemon or lime zest, which would go with Italian or Mexican meals!
  4. The stir-fry part looks so beautiful when finished! The sauce was too peanut-y for me so I diluted it with a little more soy and water, and added a dash of fish sauce to it, too. I tossed some panko bread crumbs into the chicken mixture prior to cooking, too. I will use this tasy dish again. Thanks.


<p>My rating system: (I don't like giving bad reviews, so if I don't like it, I'll just not review it.) <br /><br />5 Stars OMG, this is one of the most amazing things I've ever eaten! I can't stop eating it, and I've eaten myself into a food coma. <br /><br />4 Stars The recipe is wonderful as is. I can't think of a single improvement and I will most likely make it again. <br /><br />3 Stars This needed a little *something*something*. I might make it again, but will add my own improvements if I do. <br /><br />I love to eat! And I love to cook. I tend to take over the kitchen when I get in there. Even the dog knows the command get outta my kitchen! LOL. Cooking for other people and trying new recipes or foods is FUN! I have a small (but growing quickly!!) cookbook collection and one of my favorite things to do is to read recipes and plan meals. Rachael Ray, Horn of the Moon and Moosewood are favorites of mine. <br /><br />We spend a lot of time outdoors camping, hiking and backpacking. Yup. I cook in the woods too! I've made deals with my hiking buddies... If they carry in my food, I'll cook for them. I recently published a backpacking cookbook.
