Ingredients

  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 cup fresh orange juice
  • Zest of 2 oranges
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro (for garnish)

Instructions

  1. In a bowl, whisk together the fresh orange juice, orange zest, honey, minced garlic, soy sauce, ground ginger, salt, and pepper to create the marinade.
  2. Place the chicken breasts in a resealable plastic bag and pour the marinade over them. Seal the bag and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes to marinate.
  3. Preheat your grill or grill pan over medium-high heat and brush it with olive oil to prevent sticking.
  4. Remove the chicken from the marinade and grill for about 6-8 minutes per side or until fully cooked, basting with the marinade occasionally.
  5. Once the chicken is cooked through and has a beautiful caramelized glaze, remove it from the grill.
  6. Serve the Zesty Orange Glazed Chicken hot, garnished with fresh cilantro. It pairs perfectly with steamed rice and roasted vegetables.
