Orange Chicken Supper Recipe

Orange Chicken Supper Recipe

"We're an American military family stationed in Germany," writes Lynda Muller. "Since we're just as busy as stateside families, this meal really fits our lifestyle. Because it uses a rice mix, orange juice and other items I keep on hand, it's both satisfying and swift."
