Orange Rice

Orange juice, thyme, onion and celery give this dressed-up side dish a nice blend of flavors. It's a pleasant accompaniment to pork chops, Cornish game hens and chicken.—Janice Mitchell, Aurora, Colorado

    I made this with brown rice to accompany the Orange Chicken and Veggies recipe. It all came out quite nice. The family liked it.
