Grilled Orange Chicken Breasts
This chicken has a wonderful flavor and the citrus makes it nice and tender.
Plan ahead, because it does need to marinade 1-2 hours.
We enjoy using the leftover chicken on top of mixed green salads.
Prep time does not include maridading. Grilling time is estimated.
1 1/2-2 lbs boneless skinless chicken breasts
3 tablespoons chopped fresh orange sections
1/3 cup orange juice (fresh squeezed is best)
1/4 cup olive oil
3 teaspoons lime juice
4-5 garlic cloves, minced
1 teaspoon dried thyme
2 teaspoons dried oregano (I like to use Mexican Oregano for this)
2 teaspoons ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon salt
Combine all ingredients except the chicken in a large resealable plastic bag; seal then lightly shake to mix.
Add the chicken then turn to coat well.
Seal and refrigerate 1-2 hours.
Drain and discard marinade.
Grill uncovered, over medium-hot coals, turning often, 10-15 minutes or until juices run clear.
