1 small fennel bulb, chopped [or 1/3 cup chopped celery]
2 cups water
1 package Knorr® Rice Sides™ - Chicken flavor
1/4 cup dried cranberries
2 Tbsp. orange juice
1/2 tsp. orange peel (optional)

Preheat oven to 425°. Arrange pork in roasting pan. Roast 25 minutes or until done.
Meanwhile, melt margarine in 3-quart saucepan over medium heat and cook fennel, stirring occasionally, 5 minutes or until crisp-tender. Add water and bring to a boil. Add Knorr® Rice Sides™ - Chicken flavor. Reduce heat and cook, stirring occasionally, 7 minutes or until rice is tender. Stir in cranberries, orange juice and orange peel and cook 1 minute. Let stand 2 minutes; sprinkle with pecans.
Serve with sliced pork and, if desired, steamed green beans.
