Delicious way to grill chicken on the BBQ.


  1. In a ziploc, combine orange juice, soy sauce, honey, lemon-pepper seasoning, ginger, and garlic powder; Set aside.
  2. Place each chicken breast half between 2 pieces of plastic wrap.
  3. Working from center to the edges, pound lightly with the flat side of a meat mallet to an even thickness.
  4. Remove plastic wrap.
  5. Place chicken pieces in marinade.
  6. Cover and chill for 4 to 6 hours or overnight.
  7. Remove chicken from marinade, reserving marinade.
  8. To grill, place chicken on an uncovered grill directly over medium coals.
  9. Grill about 12 minutes or until tender and no longer pink, turning and brushing chicken with marinade once.
  10. Discard any remaining marinade.
  11. (Or, place chicken on the unheated rack of a broiler pan.
  12. Broil 4 to 5 inches from heat about 7 minutes, turning and brushing chicken with marinade once).

I like this recipe on pork. Ours didn't come out as flavorful as I would have liked. Maybe I have to marinate longer. Also, something oily in the marinade might help. Thanks. :)

We used boneless skinless chicken thighs. They were in the marinade for almost 48 hours. They were so moist and tasty. Thanks Redsie. Made for 123 hit wonders

How can I say this without sounding a stalker? I'm coming to your house so you can teach me how to cook!!! This recipe is 100% delicious!!!! The only thing I changed was to use Bragg's Liquid Aminos instead of the soy sauce and it turned out fabulous. I tossed some sliced squash and sliced onions on the grill with it and coated them with the leftover marinade. Threw it all atop brown rice and feasted! Thanks so much!!!
