Orange-Thyme Sauce and Marinade for Grilling

READY IN: 6mins
Recipe by HokiesMom

This is a great sauce over all types of meat, beef, pork and chicken. Remember to always pull some of the sauce to the side for basting or for serving with the meat and do not reuse any sauce used for marinading the meat as then it is contaminated.

What a great marinade! I wanted this to be gluten-free so used GF soy sauce and regular salt instead of the seasoning salt just to make sure. After reserving some of the marinade for glazing, I added a bit of orange juice (making sure it was GF) to thin it out, then put boneless skinless chicken breasts in for about 6 hours. The orange and thyme work so well together and the result was tender moist and delicious chicken - thanks for sharing the recipe! Made for ZWT8, Chefs gone WILD!

Ingredients Nutrition

  2. Grill steak, chicken or pork over medium high heat basting with some of the reserved sauce near the end of cook time so it does not burn.
