Delish? Yes! This Citrus Marinated Grilled Chicken is bright, moist and full of flavor.
It’s grilled to perfection with a slight hint of heat.
After the Polar Vortex froze us solid for a couple of weeks, the temps have risen. Actually the weather has been sunny and warm enough to enjoy the outdoors the last few days. Shhh! I don’t want to put a jinx on anything. (My husband and I had just talked about how our boys had really not gotten hurt and our youngest broke his arm two days later! See jinx, be careful!) We took advantage of the warmer temperatures this weekend and grilled chicken.
I marinated these chicken breasts in freshly squeezed orange and lemon juice to give it a kick. I also added worcestershire, red pepper flakes and a few more spices. I let it marinate in the refrigerator for just a couple of hours.
Usually Wesley or Lincoln grills and I make everything else. Wesley was busy so I asked Lincoln to help. He did at first, but got distracted. I have an internal timer when it comes to baking, but not grilling. I almost let these breasts cook too long on the first side. Time sure does fly when you’re grilling….
So anyway, don’t leave the grill to go do your hair, just sayin’
The citrus gives this chicken a really bright taste and the red pepper the heat I prefer, because I used a light touch with it! We had these with my Vegetable Pasta Salad and easy 10 Minute Rolls, but I’m cooking extra to use in a Cobb Salad Sandwich for later!
There are so many dishes you can use this chicken in. Don’t forget to review my Encore dishes for ideas and recipes for leftover turkey or chicken. You could put extra chicken on salads and sandwiches, in dips and wraps, on nachos, in soup, in tacos, and on pizza. Clearly there are many, many ways to use chicken so always, always cook or grill extra when you’re cooking!
