    Elisa72's Note:

    Impera_Magna led me to this recipe when I was looking for a citrus chicken dish like one I'd had at a Thai restaurant. While this was nothing like the restaurant dish, it was very tasty and the family loved it! The recipe is from, which has many recipes that look worth trying! I have not browsed the rest of the site. Cooking time includes two hours of marinating time.

      In a medium bowl, whisk together lemon zest, orange zest, garlic, chives, salt, pepper, lime juice, lemon juice, honey and balsamic vinegar.
    3. 3
      Pour into bag, over chicken. Close bag securely and turn to distribute marinade.
    4. 4

      Flavorful Chicken that is really moist. The citrus is the star of this show. My DBF had to ask what type of meat it was because it was so tender. I reduced this to one large half breast and he preferred his without the sauce and I liked mine with it! Another keeper for sure! PAC '08
