Grilled Citrus Chicken

This is a fresh marinade that captures the summertime season of grilling with light and sweet overtones for grilled chicken.


  1. 1Place the all ingredients in a resealable plastic bag.
  2. 2Keep refrigerated for 4 to 10 hours.
  3. 3Turn after several hours to baste liquid through all chicken meat.
  4. 4Remove chicken from marinade and pour marinade into a sauce pan.
  5. 5Heat on stove top for 3 minutes on medium heat, to blend flavors, and cook chicken juices.
  6. 6Just before grilling add salt and pepper to season on both sides of chicken.
  7. 7Place marinaded chicken on preheated grill (8 to 10 minutes on Low-Low/Med Heat, lid down).
  8. 8Grill chicken with lid-down on Low-Low/Med Heat.
  9. 9Grill chicken for 15-20 minutes, turning after 3-4 minutes and brushing marinade on topside. (NOTE: Judge the initial sear marks to get an indication of how hot you are cooking. If the sear marks are dark to black on the first flip, you are cooking too hot, turn down the burners.)
