When you’re in the mood for rich flavors and a filling meal, this recipe will deliver just that. Hearty chicken thighs are glazed with orange marmalade and tangy salsa for a much welcomed spicy kick and perfected with a helping of melted Sargento® Shredded Reduced Fat Colby-Jack Cheese on top.

  • 8 small bone-in chicken thighs or 4 bone-in chicken breasts (about 2-1/4 lbs.)
  • 1-1/2 tsp. chili powder
  • 1/2 cup salsa
  • 1/4 cup orange marmalade
  • 1-3/4 cups (7 oz.) Sargento® Shredded Reduced Fat Colby-Jack Cheese, divided
  • 2 pouches (8.8 to 10 oz.) fully cooked brown or brown and wild rice*
  • 1/4 cup sliced green onion or chives (optional)
  1. Remove and discard skin from chicken thighs or breasts. Sprinkle chili powder over meaty sides of chicken. Place in a shallow foil-lined jelly roll pan or shallow roasting pan.
  2. Combine salsa and marmalade. Spread half of salsa mixture over chicken. Bake in preheated 375°F oven 15 minutes. Spread remaining salsa mixture over chicken. Continue baking 20 minutes or until chicken is cooked through. Sprinkle 3/4 cup cheese over chicken; return to oven and bake 2 minutes or until cheese is melted.
  3. Meanwhile, prepare rice according to package directions. Stir remaining 1 cup cheese into rice; transfer to serving plates. Place chicken over rice and garnish with onion or chives.
