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."
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 30 min. YIELD:4 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 package (6.9 ounces) chicken-flavored rice mix
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1-1/2 cups hot water
  • 1 cup orange juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper, optional
  • 2 cups cubed cooked chicken
  • 1-1/2 cups frozen sliced carrots, thawed

Directions

  • 1. Set aside seasoning packet from rice mix. In a large skillet, cook rice mix in butter over medium heat until golden brown.
