Orange juice concentrate replaces part of the liquid in the rice mix, giving this Wild Rice Pilaf a tantalizing punch.
Nonstick spray coating
1/2 cup chopped onion
3 cups water
1-1/4 cup long grain rice
3/4 cup frozen orange juice concentrate, thawed
3 tablespoons reduced-sodium soy sauce
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
1/8 to 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
3 cups loose-pack frozen stir-fry vegetables (sugar sugar snap peas, carrots, onions, and mushrooms)
1 cup chopped cooked chicken
Spray an unheated large saucepan with nonstick coating. Add onion; cook and stir over medium heat until onion is tender but not brown. Carefully stir in water, uncooked rice, thawed concentrate, soy sauce, ginger, and pepper. Bring to boil; reduce heat. Cover and simmer for 15 minutes.
Sprinkle frozen vegetables on top of mixture; do not stir in. Cover and simmer about 5 minutes more or until rice and vegetables are tender and liquid is absorbed. Stir in chicken; heat through.
Recipe makes 4 servings.
