Grilled Orange-Soy Chicken




Last week we had our first peek at spring and it was glorious! 70s, sunny and low humidity - I could take a few more months of this before the heat and humidity settle in.

Grilling last week was a must so I put together a quick marinade for chicken. It was sweet and spicy with hints of citrus - just perfectly light and fresh for a warm day.



Grilled Orange-Soy Chicken
Original recipe

For 2 large boneless chicken breasts:
  • 1/4 c light olive oil
  • 1/4 c orange juice
  • 2 Tbsp low sodium soy sauce
  • 1 tsp Sriracha sauce
  • 1/2 tsp minced ginger
  • 3 cloves of garlic, pressed
Mix all ingredients in a bowl and pour over chicken. Cover and place in fridge for 8 hours until ready to grill.

Jon grilled the chicken over medium high heat until the internal temperature reached 165. The marinade caramelized on the chicken a bit, creating a crispy glaze, and the chicken stayed moist on the inside. We let the chicken rest for 10 minutes before eating it.

Enjoy!
