Orange Chicken and Rice Pilaf

Since I have had more time on my hands, I have been able to search through some of the blogs I enjoy. I was looking at some recent posts on Simply Recipes and noticed a recipe for marinated orange chicken. Ironically I had just bought 4 pounds of oranges on sale last week. While I did not follow the recipe, it was more or less inspiration; I read through it once a few days ago and then made the recipe on a whim. I have posted a grain pilaf before , but this version was for my left over rice. I love the tasted of toasted nuts with sauteed vegetables and grains. I think my favorite part of this recipe was getting to eat with my chop sticks again 🙂

  2. Heat a large pan on medium heat. Place chicken in the pan. Add about 1/4 cup Teriyaki sauce – more or less as desired. Add a dash of salt and pepper. Cover and stir periodically for 10 minutes. Check the temperature of the chicken (it should read 165F when it is done).
