1. Trim chicken of fat, and slice into strips to resemble chicken tenders.
2. Add marinade ingredients to a zip-top plastic bag and whisk to combine. Add chicken to bag, and seal, pressing out any excess air.
3. Squish the bag around a bit to make sure all the chicken pieces are coated in the marinade.
4. Place bag in refrigerator up to 8 hours.
5. Pour entire contents of the bag into a large skillet and heat over MED-HIGH heat until the mixture comes to a bubble.
6. Reduce heat to MED-LOW and simmer, uncovered, for about 25-30 minutes, until most of the liquid cooks off, leaving a loose glaze.
7. The last 5 minutes or so, add in the sliced bell pepper, jalapeno and orange slices and let them cook in the glaze.
8. Remove chicken, veggies and oranges to a plate.
9. Serve over rice.
10. Garnish with sliced green onions, minced parsley, and a lime wedge.
