2 T. vegetable oil
2 lb. chicken pieces
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. curry powder
1/2 tsp. ground ginger
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 c. golden raisins
1 c. orange juice
1 T. cornstarch
1 T. sugar
1 c. rice
1/2 c. chopped cashews
2 tsp. grated orange peel

CHICKEN: Heat the oil; add the chicken and brown. Drain off the fat and add salt, curry powder, ginger, garlic, and raisins. In a small, separate bowl combine the orange juice with cornstarch and sugar. Mix until lump free. Pour the liquid mixture over the chicken. Cook on a low heat, turning several times, until the chicken is tender, about 45
minutes. If a thicker sauce is desired, remove the chicken to simmer the sauce a bit longer. Return the chicken to sauce for serving.
RICE: Cook the rice as usual; once cooked, add the cashews and orange peel.

Personal Notes:
Years ago Uncle Ben's changed the packaging of their rice to eliminate waste. I wrote to congratulate them on helping the environment. Their response was to send me a year's worth of coupons and their newsletter, which had this recipe in it. A nice reward for the time it took to write the letter!
