Grilled Marinated Chicken

"We enjoyed this chicken -- the recipe calls for marinating the chicken for 30-60 minutes, but I ran out of time, so mine was marinated for maybe 10/15 minutes but still was great. Recipe source: local newspaper which was adapted from Soaked, Slathered, and Seasoned by Elizabeth Karmel."

Ready In:




  • Combine first 6 ingredients (orange juice - red pepper flakes) in a bowl (I used a large plastic measuring cup) and then whisk in the olive oil and herbs.
  • Pat chicken dry and place in a large zip lock bag or marinating bowl and add 1 3/4 cups marinade, turn to coat. Place in fridge for 30-60 minutes.
  • Prepare grill.
  • Remove chicken from marinade and place chicken on grill, bone side down, cover turning chicken occasionally. Grill covered until chicken is done (30 minutes).
  • Remove from the grill and drizzle chicken with remaining marinade and let rest for 10 minutes before serving.

    Wow what a great chicken recipe. I followed everything exactly right up to the actual grilling where instead of direct heat I used an indirect heat for grilling the chicken to help prevent flare-ups. I just find this method to work better for me while grilling chicken. There was a bit more heat that I like but hubby and son loved it so next time I may cut back on the red pepper flakes for part of the chicken but overall it was a great recipe and one I will use again. Thanks for sharing in Newest Zaar Star.

    Delicious grilled chicken! I marinated boneless skinless breasts for about 1 1/2 hours and ended up with juicy and flavorful chicken. I used dried herbs with good results but will definitely use fresh next time. Thanks for posting the recipe!


<p>I love cooking and trying different foods, but my favorite cookbooks are now Weight Watchers or low fat/low cal cookbooks as I tend to try and make low fat/low cal recipes. I lost over 90 pounds on Weight Watchers and have maintained for over a year now -- so my cooking/eating habits have changed drastically following my weight loss and to keep it off!</p>
