Citrus Glazed Chicken with Cilantro Rice

Tangy citrus-glazed chicken is the perfect weeknight meal. This dish is packed with flavor, but only takes 10 minutes to prepare. Boneless, skinless chicken breasts are coated in a delicious cumin-coriander rub and then roasted until juicy and tender. A simple vinaigrette of lemon, orange, olive oil, and shallot is a little sweet, a little sour, a little savory, and the perfect complement for the chicken.

This recipe was amazing! I used slightly larger chicken breasts so I increased the cooking time by 17 minutes and got every piece perfectly cooked. I shoukd also note I live at around 6500ft. My wife, my son, and I absolutely loved the glaze and the rice was perfect with the cilantro. Definitely our favorite recipe so far!
