This is one of my favorite chicken recipes because the sauce is so delish and sweetened with raisins and pineapple juice. For two, just cut the amount of chicken and rice in half, but I like to make all of the sauce so we can really enjoy it. My personal preference as a side dish: artichokes with garlic butter for dipping.
