Citrus Barbecued Chicken

"From the local TV cookbook called "KCTS Cooks" (on the grill). This marinade gives the chicken a delicious, fruity tang. It was sent in by a viewer in Bellingham, Washington. This is also WW friendly, only 3.5 points."

  1. Loved this chicken. I marinated it overnight and really enjoyed the nice citrus flavor. Thanks for sharing, Teresa. Made for For Your Consideration tag.
  2. We really enjoyed this chicken. It's nice, light and fresh tasting due to the citrus. Next time I might add more of the garlic, oregano and chili powder. I particularly liked the fact that this chicken can be both marinated and cooked very quickly! Thank you.
  3. This was absolutely amazing! Even though I was out of lime/lime juice, my SIL suggested trying it with orange juice, not really the same but it still turned out delicious! I pan seared the chicken since it's much too cold outside right now to grill, then deglazed the pan with chicken broth and lemon juice for a nice full flavored sauce. The whole family raved! This will be a regular for sure! :D
  4. Marinated the chicken overnight and DH cooked on the grill. A light citrus flavor and moist chicken that we enjoyed. I agree with the reviewer that mentioned serving this with a subtle side dish to not overpower the chicken. Made and reviewed for Kittencal's Recipe Tag Game.
  5. It isn't exactly BBQ weather here in London today. So, I did these under the broiler and they still turned out really well. I ended up marinating them for several hours in the fridge and by the time they were done they were packed full of flavour. I really enjoyed them and think they would be a great base for a chicken burger piled high on a bun with some mayo and crisp veggies. Made for Spring PAC 2010.
