Ingredients

  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 cup fresh orange juice
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 teaspoon grated orange zest
  • 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

  1. Start by marinating the chicken. In a bowl, combine the fresh orange juice, soy sauce, minced garlic, honey, orange zest, red pepper flakes, salt, and pepper. Mix well.
  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, allowing the flavors to meld.
  3. Preheat your grill to medium-high heat and 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 chicken is cooked through and has beautiful grill marks.
  5. While grilling, brush the chicken with the remaining marinade to build up that irresistible orange glaze.
  6. Once done, transfer the chicken to a platter and let it rest for a few minutes before serving.
