1. With a sharp knife, mark the surface of the chicken breast portions in a diamond pattern and place in a single layer in a shallow dish.
2. Combine the turmeric, mustard, orange juice and honey and pour the mixture over the chicken. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Chill until required.
3. Lift the chicken from the marinade and pat dry on kitchen paper. Reserve the marinade.
4. Heat the oil in a wide pan, add the chicken and saute until golden, turning once. Drain off any excess oil. Pour the marinade into the pan, cover and simmer for 10-15 minutes until the chicken is tender.
5. Cook the rice in lightly salted boiling water for 15-20 minutes until tender, then drain well. Finely grate the orange rind and stir it into the rice with the mint.
6. Remove the white pith from the orange and cut the flesh into segments.
7. Serve the chicken with the orange and mint rice, garnished with orange segments and mint sprigs.
