Prompted by a visit from my husband's orange-loving grandmother (she spends winters in Florida), I planned an orangy dinner. Even the main dish fit the theme, with mandarin oranges and orange juice in this savory chicken and rice bake. —Susan West North Grafton, Massachusetts


  • 1-1/2 cups uncooked long grain rice
  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breast halves (1 pound)
  • 1/2 cup sliced fresh mushrooms
  • 2 cups orange juice
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • Pepper to taste
  • 1 can (15 ounces) mandarin oranges, drained
  • Paprika and minced fresh parsley, optional


  1. Spread rice in a greased shallow 3-qt. baking dish. Top with chicken and mushrooms. Pour orange juice and broth over all. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  2. Cover and bake at 350° for 45-50 minutes or until chicken juices run clear and rice is tender. Garnish with oranges, paprika and parsley if desired.
