Recipe Ingredients for Brazilian chicken

1 pound chicken breast (skinless boneless cut into 1/2-inch-wide strips)
1/4 cup olive oil
4 garlic cloves, finely chopped
1 teaspoon grated orange peel
1/2 cup water
1 cup orange juice
1 cup basmati rice

1/2 tsp kosher salt
1 tsp black pepper
1/2 tsp turmeric
1/2 tsp ground cumin
1/4 tsp ground coriander
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon

  1. Sprinkle chicken lightly with salt and generously with ground black pepper. Heat oil in heavy large skillet over medium-high heat.
