Ingredients

  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 cup freshly squeezed orange juice
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon ginger, grated
  • 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes (adjust to taste)
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 2 tablespoons fresh cilantro, chopped (for garnish)

Instructions

  1. Start by making the marinade. In a bowl, combine the freshly squeezed orange juice, soy sauce, honey, minced garlic, grated ginger, red pepper flakes, salt, and pepper. Mix well.
  2. Place the chicken breasts in a resealable plastic bag or a shallow dish and pour half of the marinade over them. Seal the bag or cover the dish and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes (or up to 24 hours for best flavor).
  3. Preheat your grill or stovetop grill pan over medium-high heat and brush with vegetable oil to prevent sticking.
  4. Remove the chicken from the marinade, allowing any excess to drip off, and grill for about 6-8 minutes per side or until the chicken is cooked through and has beautiful grill marks.
  5. While grilling, pour the remaining marinade into a small saucepan. Simmer over medium heat until it thickens into a glossy glaze (about 10-15 minutes).
  6. Once the chicken is done, brush it generously with the sticky orange glaze on both sides, allowing it to caramelize slightly on the grill for an extra minute.
  7. Remove the chicken from the grill and let it rest for a few minutes. Sprinkle with fresh cilantro for a burst of color and flavor.
  8. Serve your Sticky and Sweet Orange Glazed Chicken with your favorite sides and enjoy!
