"We're an American military family stationed in Germany," writes Lynda Muller. "Since we're just as busy as stateside families, this meal really fits our lifestyle. Because it uses a rice mix, orange juice and other items I keep on hand, it's both satisfying and swift."

Ingredients

  • 1 package (6.9 ounces) chicken-flavored rice mix
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1-1/2 cups hot water
  • 1 cup orange juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper, optional
  • 2 cups cubed cooked chicken
  • 1-1/2 cups frozen sliced carrots, thawed

Directions

  1. Set aside seasoning packet from rice mix. In a large skillet, cook rice mix in butter over medium heat until golden brown. Stir in the water, orange juice, garlic powder, ginger, cayenne if desired and contents of seasoning packet; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 10 minutes.
  2. Add chicken and carrots. Cover and simmer for 5-10 minutes or until heated through and liquid is absorbed. Fluff with a fork.
