I am giving this three stars, because the rice actually turned out really yummy, although with the addition of some spices. The chicken though - I am always wary of using whole skinless chicken breasts, because they usually dry out by the time they are fully cooked and this was no different. I seared them first as per recipe, but by the time my rice was done, they were actually not only pink, but raw inside - not a good thing with chicken. I removed the breasts from the rice, put them in a separate pot and continued cooking in a little extra broth for another 7 minutes. When they were finally done, they were extremely dry and the chicken had not absorbed any of the orange flavor. Our dog ended up enjoying most of the chicken, and that's a shame. Overall, the idea with the orange juice has great potential though. I added some lemon pepper, salt, garlic and orange zest and as mentioned above, the rice was great. I will try this again with skinless chicken thighs, which are much more moist and less prone to overcooking.
