3. Place the rice in a pot and cover with chicken broth; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and cook 30-40 minutes. Fluff with a fork.
4. Meanwhile, heat a little olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. When the oil is hot, add the marinated chicken and brown for 5-8 minutes, then turn and brush with a little more of the remaining sauce. Cook until the chicken is tender and cooked through, about 5 minutes more. Remove from the heat and let set 5 minutes; slice the chicken into strips.
5. To make the dressing, in a small bowl or glass jar, combine olive oil, lime juice, balsamic vinegar, crushed red pepper, salt and pepper. Whisk well, taste and season to your liking.
6. To assemble each bowl, place some lettuce in each bowl (I tossed the lettuce with a little dressing). Top each bowl with equal amounts of sliced oranges, grape tomatoes, sliced avocados, cilantro and green onions. Add the rice and chicken. Sprinkle with cashews and goat cheese. Drizzle with more dressing and any remaining chipotle orange sauce if desired.
