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!!

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.
