2 – Measure 1 cup of white rice into a large, wide-mouthed, covered baking dish. Add 1 cup of water. Season with 1 teaspoon of salt and a few drops of olive oil. Microwave on high for 3 minutes. Let sit for at least 5 minutes.
3 – Cut florets from the broccoli, in bite-sized pieces. Slice the green onions in one-half inch pieces. Add broccoli, green onions, and carrots (uncut) to a covered baking dish. Season with salt, pepper, and olive oil. Pour a generous amount of orange sauce over the whole. Microwave on high for 5 minutes.
4 – Microwave the chicken for 5 minutes. When finished, cut the chicken into bite-sized pieces. Add the chicken to the vegetables, and stir well. Add more sesame seeds on top.
