  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 cup fresh orange juice
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon grated orange zest
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Chopped fresh cilantro for garnish


  1. Start by preparing the marinade. In a bowl, whisk together the fresh orange juice, soy sauce, minced garlic, grated orange zest, honey, ground ginger, salt, and pepper.
  2. Place the chicken breasts in a resealable plastic bag and pour the marinade over them. Seal the bag, ensuring the chicken is well-coated, and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes, allowing the flavors to meld.
  3. Preheat your grill to medium-high heat and lightly oil the grates to prevent sticking.
  4. Remove the chicken from the marinade and grill for about 6-8 minutes per side or until the internal temperature reaches 165°F (74°C) and the chicken is nicely charred and cooked through.
  5. While grilling, baste the chicken with the reserved marinade to infuse even more flavor.
  6. Once done, remove the chicken from the grill and let it rest for a few minutes.
  7. Garnish with chopped fresh cilantro and serve hot. This Tangy Orange Glazed Grilled Chicken pairs perfectly with a side of rice or a fresh green salad.
