Grilled Sunrise Chicken

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.

Sunrise Chicken

  • 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
