We have now been living in our house for almost a full week and are finally getting settled in. There are still some boxes to unpack and lots of organizing to be done, but I’m excited to finally be able to cook and bake in my own kitchen again.
We just got a new propane tank and hooked it up to the grill. And, the sun is shining! We’ve got out outdoor furniture set up on our deck and it’s a great weekend to eat outside and enjoy the weather.
This glaze is super easy to make and comes together quickly.
Orange Marmalade Glazed Grilled Chicken
Yield: 4 servings
4 boneless chicken breasts (or thighs)
3/4 cup orange marmalade
juice from 1/2 of a lemon
juice from 1/2 of an orange
3 bay leaves
salt and pepper to taste
orange slices (optional)
1. Preheat your grill to medium-high heat. In a small bowl, combine orange marmalade, juices from the orange and lemon, bay leaves, and salt and pepper to taste. Reserve 1/4 cup of the glaze for serving. Slice the remaining half of the orange into slices and set aside.
2. Season chicken with salt and pepper. Place on preheated grill and brush chicken with the glaze. Cook 5 minutes and flip. Brush with more glaze (discard any remaining glaze), and cook another 5 minutes or until chicken is done. Serve with reserved 1/4 cup glaze.
Optional: When chicken is done, remove from grill. Place oranges on grill and cook until softened 1 minute per side. Serve with chicken and reserved glaze.
It is the perfect time to fire up the grill and try out this delicious chicken recipe.
