Lowfat Double-Gingered Orange Chicken

We sometimes think lowfat, fast and easy are synonomous with tasteless, but with the right combination of ingredients, a dish can also be quite tasty, as well as elegant. I created this recipe several years ago using some of my favorite ingredients. Preheat oven to 375°F.

Sprinkle chicken with salt and pepper and brown on both sides in a large, non-stick fry pan sprayed with Pam over medium-high heat, about 3 minutes on each side.

Place chicken in single layer in 13 x 9-inch baking pan.

In blender container combine diluted orange juice, fresh and dry ginger, mustard and soy sauce. Blend for 10 seconds on low speed and pour over chicken.

Sprinkle with parsley and almonds.

Bake in preheated oven for 20 minutes.

While chicken is cooking, prepare rice mix according to package instructions.

Serve chicken with rice, spooning orange sauce over both.
Serves 6.
