Orange Chicken and Rice

Orange Chicken & Rice

This recipe is adapted from one that I found in The Omega Diet by Artemis Simopoulos and Jo Robinson. The focus of this book is healthy eating that creates a “smart” immune system and reduces your risk of heart disease and cancer. I have liked every recipe that I’ve tried from this book which just goes to prove that healthy does not mean tasteless! This dish is very flavorful with the combination of orange juice and curry.

1 lb. boneless, skinless chicken thighs, cut into bite size pieces
2 T. canola or olive oil
1 medium onion, coarsely chopped
1 – 14.5 oz. can chicken broth
1 1/2 C. orange juice
1-3 t. curry
2 cloves garlic, minced
dash of cinnamon
3 T. raisins
1/2 cup wild rice and white rice blend
salt and pepper to taste

1. Saute chicken and onion in oil until brown.
2. Add the broth, orange juice, and seasoning. Cover and simmer for 20 minutes.
3. Add the raisins and rice to the same pot, lower the heat, and cover. Simmer for 40 – 45 minutes or until the rice is done. Add water or more broth if necessary.
Serves 4

    I figured out the Weight Watchers point. This is 6 points per serving which is excellent for a main dish. I can’t find the boneless, skinless chicken thighs at Kroger though.
