Orange Chicken Rice and Vegetables


This is an easy dish to make when you are craving a quick flavorful meal the whole family will like. I used Steamfresh rice with vegetables to make it an extra fast meal. I just popped the rice in the microwave for 5 minutes, while cooking the chicken. Then I added all the sauce ingredients to the skillet, brought it to a boil, and then added the contents of the bag of rice. I omitted the peanuts, but I bet they are a delicious addition to this dish.
