Grilling season is here, so tonight’s recipe exchange is all about chicken marinades. This is a great citrus flavored marinade that goes great with rice or coucous.
- 4 boneless chicken breasts
- ½ cup lemon juice
- ½ cup lime juice
- 1/3 cup brown sugar
- ¼ cup orange juice
- 1 tbsp crushed garlic
- 2 tsp ground ginger
- 1 tsp of black pepper
zip lock bag or sealed container
Add all ingredients into zip lock bag, thoroughly coat and let marinate 1 hour, flipping at least once. Grill 15 minutes each side, 165 degrees F internal temp.
When grilling, to avoid drying chicken out, sear on each side (about 5 minutes each side), cook 5 additional minutes for each side, baste with marinade if desired, then move away from high heat for rest of the cooking time. The thickness of the chicken breasts makes a difference here, so adjust accordingly
