Fruited Chicken and Rice Skillet - Around the Kitchen Table

This was always one of my favorite meals growing up. It's a fruity twist on the classic Chicken Stir-Fry that everyone loves so much, has a lot of flavor and is really delicious. I'm not sure why, but I'd never made it for Joe, so I threw it on our meal plan last week and he really liked it! It's probably not a super low carb meal for me with the rice, orange juice and fruit, but I ate mostly chicken and green peppers with just a little bit of rice and fruit so I could still enjoy the meal.

Tips and Tricks:
After Joe made dinner for me on Valentine's Day, I had an idea that I will be testing out the next time I make this for dinner. I love the flavor of other bell peppers and plan to experiment with red, yellow and orange in this dish to add more veggies and variety. If any of you try it out that way, come back and let me know how it turned out!

I personally let my skillet stand, covered, for 10 or 15 minutes after I remove it from the heat because we like our rice to be a little more tender that I usually find it to be after just five minutes. Test it out after five and see what you prefer!
