Recipe #4 – Swanson Citrus Chicken & Rice

Swanson Citrus Chicken and Rice


  • 4 skinless, boneless chicken breasts
  • 1 3/4 cups Swanson® Chicken Broth
  • (regular, Natural Goodness™ or
  • Certified Organic)
  • 1/2 cup orange juice
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 cup (uncooked) regular long-grain
  • white rice
  • 3 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
  • Orange slices
  1. Cook chicken in nonstick skillet over medium-high heat 10 minutes or until browned. Set chicken aside.
  2. Add broth, orange juice, onion and rice. Heat to a boil. Cover and cook over low heat 10 minutes. Return chicken to skillet. Replace cover.
  3. Cook 10 minutes or until chicken is done. Stir in parsley and top with orange slices.

My Notes:

I tore this recipe out of a magazine years ago because it sounded interesting and easy. Easy, yes but interesting? Meh. The rice in this dish is tasty, but the chicken was kind of bland. I ate the leftover rice with leftover Orange beef from a local Chinese restaurant the next day and the two complimented each other quite nicely.

I also made a few changes. I did not have orange slices on hand and I used instant rice so it would cook faster. I also used dried parsley instead of fresh. I might adapt this to just a rice recipe and use it as a side dish in the future. Might work nicely with Trader Joe’s Mandarin Orange Chicken.
