Orange-glazed Chicken

If you have a grill- use it! This chicken is amazing on an outdoor grill. I have a grill pan that I found at Target for $30 that I used here. Pair with green beans, corn on the cob, or another veggie for a perfect meal. This recipe is easy to make ahead. I sometimes make the marinade the night before and let it hang out in my fridge until dinner.

Husband Rating: 4 1/2 stars

4 boneless chicken breasts
1 cup fresh-squeezed orange juice
3 TB maple syrup
2 TB lemon juice
2 cloves garlic, minced
3 tsp. grated orange peel
1/3 tsp. salt
1/2 cup vegetable oil
Dash of black pepper

Combine orange juice, maple syrup, lemon juice, garlic, orange peel, salt and pepper in a bowl. Slowly whisk in oil until marinade is blended. Pour marinade and chicken in Ziploc bag, turning to coat chicken. Marinate for at least 2-3 hours in the fridge. Grill chicken until no longer pink (approx 12-15 minutes). Brush chicken with marinade frequently, but don't add any marinade during the last 5 minutes of cooking. Throw away any remaining marinade.
