Ingredients

  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 2 oranges, juiced and zested
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon ginger, grated

  1. In a bowl, whisk together the orange juice, orange zest, soy sauce, honey, minced garlic, grated ginger, and red pepper flakes. Season with salt and black pepper to taste.
  2. Place the chicken breasts in a resealable plastic bag and pour half of the marinade over them. Seal the bag and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes, allowing the flavors to infuse.
  3. Preheat your grill or grill pan over medium-high heat and brush with vegetable oil to prevent sticking.
  4. Remove the chicken from the marinade and grill for about 6-8 minutes per side or until cooked through and nicely charred.
  5. While grilling, brush the chicken with the reserved marinade to keep it moist and flavorful.
  6. Once done, remove the chicken from the grill and let it rest for a few minutes.
  7. Slice the grilled chicken and garnish with fresh cilantro.
  8. Serve the Citrusy Orange Chicken with the remaining marinade as a dipping sauce.
