From chicken breast recipes to pork chop recipes and more, rice complements such a wide variety of dishes, so you can whip out this recipe whenever you need it. It's rice to the rescue!

What You'll Need:
  • 1 1/3 cups chicken broth
  • 2 teaspoons butter
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 (2.75-ounce) package quick-cooking wild rice
  • 4 scallions, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup golden raisins
  • 1/3 cup chopped pecans, toasted
  • 1 teaspoon grated orange rind (see note)
  • 1/3 cup fresh orange juice
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley or 2 teaspoons dried parsley
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
What To Do:
  1. Bring first 3 ingredients to a boil in a medium saucepan. Add rice; cover, reduce heat, and simmer 5 minutes or until rice is tender. Drain off excess liquid.

  2. Fluff rice with a fork. Add scallions and remaining ingredients; toss gently to combine.

Notes

The rind from citrus fruits add bold flavor to dishes like this wild rice. Before grating, scrub the fruit to remove any wax or chemicals; then pull a zester across or down the fruit's rind, or rub the fruit against a fine grater. Be careful to remove only the colored skin of the fruit-not the white pith, which tends to be bitter.
