Rice and Broccoli

  • Arrange rice in the bottom of a greased 9x13 baking pan. Carefully pour warmed chicken broth on top of rice, making sure rice is evenly spread in bottom of pan with broth. Place seared chicken on top and brush chicken liberally with orange sauce. Cover pan with foil and bake at 400F 25-30 minutes until most of liquid is evaporated.
  • Remove foil from pan and arrange broccoli around chicken and rice. Return pan to oven and continue baking an additional 15-20 minutes until broccoli is tender and rice is fluffy and chicken registers 165F. Fluff rice with a fork and sprinkle green onions on top. Serve chicken, rice, and broccoli hot and enjoy!
