I love dishes that add a little fresh fruit to them. For this dish I got to use an orange from my parents that they grow in their back yard. The only thing I think I would do differently is maybe cook the sauce with a little cornstarch to thicken it then toss the asparagus and chicken in it so you have more of a coating then something the rice just soaks up.
