My family really liked this. Its a recipe I found in my 4 ingredient cookbook. I changed it up a bit,
and voila! It was SUPER simple and cooked itself! The mandarin oranges add just a bit of sweetness to this dish that really makes it great! By-the -way, this is pretty healthy.
1 bag of chicken, boneless & skinless
1 box of Uncle Ben’s Wild Rice, original flavor
1 box of Uncle Ben’sWild Rice, Herb Roasted Chicken Flavor
1 big can of Mandarin Oranges
2 1/2 cups of water, according to rice directions
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Using a roasting pan, layer the bottom with both boxes of rice. Then sprinkle one of the seasoning packets over the rice. Cut all the fatty parts off of the chicken and cut each breast into thirds. Layer the chicken over the rice. Sprinkle the second seasoning packet over the chicken and the rice. Lightly sprinkle salt and over the entire dish. Pour the can of mandarin oranges over the chicken. Spread them out a bit so all of the sweetness goes everywhere instead of on just one spot of the dish. Add the water carefully. Cover your roasting pan with tinfoil if you don’t have a lid. Then bake for 2 hours. So, put this on just before you go to get the kiddos from school and it will be ready for dinner!
