Smart ingredients, including packaged coleslaw and pasta mixes, make it easy to serve up a colorful combo in just 30 minutes. A refreshing orange teriyaki sauce gives this chicken a lively Asian flavor and such a pretty glisten. —Simple & Delicious Test Kitchen

"This was very good, but maybe a little too salty. The kids liked the chicken, but not the vegetable mixture."

"I was really disappointed with this recipe. The chicken didn't have any flavor and the orange juice asked the teriyaki sauce."
