There is no oddly bright orange coloring in this dish, no MSG, no non-naturally occurring sugar, and no strange chunks of onion and pineapple. It is just a sweet, glazed, orange chicken on brown rice. The flavor? It comes from ORANGES. This photo is from my kitchen and this plate was promptly eaten by my husband, I am not a food stylist and I only want to offer you honest recipes, and not 400 backdrops and lighting from the sun at exactly 1:05pm. It is dinner time, and this photo is taken with my phone with teardrop lights that hang over the kitchen island. I am just a real gal eating food that a normal person can cook. It is, after all, The Simple Kitchen. Not the “Heirloom, Gourmet, Farm to Table, Artisan Kitchen.”
Here is what I changed: Swapped Quinoa for Brown Rice. No green onions (I love them but hubs does not) Used 3 pounds of chicken, not 2. How was it? Well, I am posting a picture and adding a link in my site so you do the math!
Trying to lighten up? Give it a try – and it was EASY! I think this would be a good recipe for a group and I think I would put this glaze on chicken wings with a little more chili peppers.
Toddles and tata!
