How to Make Island Breeze Rice

Step-by-Step

  1. In a 4 quart glass casserole dish with lid, combine the rice, orange juice, coconut milk, diced orange bell peppers, diced red bell peppers, frozen peas, lime zest, jerk seasoning or cayenne pepper, curry powder, green table onion, oil and salt and pepper. Cover and bake at 450 degree oven for 45-60 minutes or until all liquid is absorbed into rice and it is tender.
  2. When done baking, take a fork and fluff the rice and add the cilantro. Mix thoroughly and add cashews to top of dish and serve while hot!
  3. I like to cut a pineapple in half, remove the pineapple meat to about 1/2 inch of the outer shell. Save pineapple for dessert. Fill the cavity with rice and serve with Island Breeze Chicken. Outstanding!
