I loved this rice!! I used 1c. jasmine rice and decreased the oj to 1c and added 3/4c ch. broth w/ the zest. Covered and simmered 15 min. Folded in the manderins then sprinkled toasted slivered almonds and sliced green onions on top. Fantastic. Thank you so much!!
Unfortunately this rice will not be a keeper. Infact, this was last time using instant rice. The long grain enriched kind just taste *so* much better! The mandarins were tasty but the rice was awful.
Great sidedish. We modified it slightly. Being ever health-minded, we used brown rice. This did not affect the outcome at all in my opinion. We doubled the reciped first, put it all in a rice cooker. Checking it every 10 minutes, we had to add more Orange Juice everytime so I would say we put about 1 cup more than the recipe called for ( doubling anyway ) so put 1/2 cup more for a single serving. Took roughly 30 minutes to cook and went great with the Gingered Chicken Breast recipe on this site. Enjoy!
What a great and easy recipe. I used the liquid from the mandarin oranges to make up some of the liquid. And I added a little dried parsley for color before serving. Very nice dish. Thanks. I served it with Rosemary Chicken with Orange Maple Glaze from this site.
I loved the taste and the ease of this recipe. I used it with the Orange Rosemary Chicken recipe I found at this sight. I also added sauted onion and celery. I have always gotten compliments when I served this rice dish. I love the mandarin orange pieces in it. That makes it visually appealing as well.
This was very tasty and easy to make. I did not have any orange zest so I left it out, but it still tasted great! It took a little longer than 5 minutes for the liquid to absorb and the rice to finish cooking, but I just left it on a few extra minutes and it was fine. Thanks!
This was fantastic we had it with the tropical pork chops and everyone loved it.
I can only rate this 3 stars because I altered the recipe. I didnt have OJ so I doubled the orange zest and used milk. The rice was creamy and a suble flavor. I think if I made this again I would try with OJ and I would double the servings and still use milk in place of one of the servings of OJ.
