cups  instant white rice, uncooked

Make It

PREHEAT oven to 400°F. Rinse chicken; pat dry with paper towel. Sprinkle chicken, both inside and out, with the salt and pepper. Place in 13x9-inch baking dish.

BAKE 20 min. Reduce heat to 350°F. Brush chicken with honey. Bake an additional 50 min. or until chicken is cooked through (180°F), basting occasionally with the pan juices up until the last 10 min. of the baking time. Let stand 10 min. before serving.

MEANWHILE, add enough water to orange juice to measure 2 cups; pour into medium saucepan. Bring to boil on medium-high heat. Stir in rice; cover. Remove from heat. Let stand 5 min. Add almonds, cranberries, orange zest and cinnamon; stir. Serve with the chicken.

Kraft Kitchens Tips

Serving Suggestion
Balance this special-occasion entrée with smart side dishes. For example, choose a mixed green salad and a hot cooked vegetable.
Keeping it Safe
Never allow cooked chicken to set at room temperature for more than 2 hours. If it is not eaten immediately, cooked chicken should be kept either hot or refrigerated.
How to Check Chicken For Doneness
Always use a thermometer to see if chicken is cooked through. The internal temperature should register at least 165ºF. When the chicken is completely cooked, the juices should run clear.
