Grilled Orange Chicken Breasts

"This chicken has a wonderful flavor and the citrus makes it nice and tender. Plan ahead, because it does need to marinade 1-2 hours. We enjoy using the leftover chicken on top of mixed green salads. Prep time does not include maridading. Grilling time is estimated."

  1. Fresh orange juice is a must! The chicken was in the marinade for about 3 hours. The end result was moist, flavorful chicken. It was served on a bed a wild a brown rice with Recipe #109418.
  2. Deliciously moist chicken and an easy marinade mixture using pantry staples. All my family enjoyed their chicken tonight and the recipe was already gluten-free suitable :D Photo also to be posted
  3. This is a great marinade for chicken! Short marinade time and made with ingredients I always have on hand is a real plus too. This combination of flavors made a great blend with no one flavor overpowering the others. Loved this - thanks for sharing the recipe!
  4. Loved it! I didn't have fresh limes, but did have some bottled key lime juice, so I dumped that in. I didn't measure out the orange, just used all the juice from a fresh orange and then scraped in some of the pulp. The chicken was a thickly-cut, so I sliced them in half for thinner pieces. Put all the marinade and chicken together and soaked overnight. It came out so juicy and tasty! Neither juice flavor was overpowering, but it was just an overall nice citrus flavor. I completely recommend this!
  5. This was OUTSTANDING. I doubled the recipe, and used an entire bag of chicken breasts from Costco, so that we would have leftovers during the week for salads and sandwiches. We had company for dinner, and the chicken was a big hit. Flavorful, but not overwhelming, and very tender and juicy.


I am blessed with a wonderful dh and four fantastic, crazy children. I am a stay at home mom who works from son up till son down. My favorite cookbook is not one that I cook with very often, it actually sits on top of my pantry propped up in an old basket. The cookbook was given to my grandmother just prior to her marriage to my grandfather and it has the family prayer and some recipes that my great-grandmother penned in her own hand inside. It is called All About Home Baking. <a href="" target="_blank"><img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a> <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src=> <img src=> <img src=""> <img src="">
