Recipe Ingredients for Baked Chicken with Brown Rice

1/2 cup brown rice
7 1/4 oz can diced tomatoes, undrained
1/2 cup low-sodium chicken broth
1/4 cup fresh orange juice
1/2 cup fresh parsley leaves, flat-leaf, roughly chopped, plus more for garnishing
1/2 medium yellow onion, thinly sliced
1/2 clove garlic, thinly sliced
1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
5/8 teaspoons kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1/8 teaspoon red pepper flakes (optional)
2 breasts chicken, boneless, skinless, cut in half

Recipe Directions for Baked Chicken with Brown Rice

  1. Heat oven to 400 F.

  2. In a large bowl, combine the rice, tomatoes and their juices, broth, orange juice, parsley, onion, garlic, cumin, 3/4 teaspoon of the salt, 1/4 teaspoon of the black pepper, and the red pepper (if using). Transfer to a 9-by-13-inch baking dish. Rinse the chicken and pat dry. Season with the remaining salt and pepper. Nestle the chicken pieces among the rice mixture.
