After reading an advertisment for bottled BBQ sauce (prefer my own from scratch)...I thought this might be worth a try. Several attempts later I think I may have it!


  1. Mix together BBQ sauce, zest of 1 orange and 1 lime with the juice of the orange & lime with garlic.
  2. Reserve 1/2 cup for later use.
  3. Place 6 boneless skinless chicken breasts (can be flattened if you prefer) in large bag or glass bowl.
  4. Pour sauce over chicken and let marinate for 30 minutes.
  5. Remove chicken and discard used sauce.
  6. Season with salt & pepper.
  7. Grill over medium heat till done; basting often with reserved sauce.

My family really, really loved this. I used store bought bbq sauce, hickory brown sugar style. It really all came together nicely. Love the citrus flavors. Very easy to make. They have requested that I keep this recipe handy for our next bbq! Thanks Cindi
