    AshK's Note:

    I love it when the weather warms up and it is time to grill. We have a lot of favorites and this one tops the list in early spring. Just the right time for great asparagus!

      My family really loved this recipe! I used about 1/3 of the recipe for the glaze to marinate my chicken breasts in overnight. The next day, I reduced the remaining 2/3's as a glaze, and made the recipe as written. Very light, and refreshing way to do both chicken, and asparagus!!Perfect for a hot New Mexico summer night!! Thanks Ash!!

      I had some trouble with getting this glaze to reduce-I let it simmer for about 20 minutes and it still hadn't reduce. I omitted the cayenne because of personal taste. The chicken itself, didn't really retain much of the orange flavour at all. I don't think I would make this again, the flavour just didn't come through the way I hoped it would.

      With Ashk's permission, I am only reviewing the chicken with glaze. The chicken had a great flavor, very light and refreshing. I'm sure asparagus would be a great accompanyment to this. DH and DD loved the light flavor that was not overly sweet.
