It's the OJ, lemon juice and garlic marinade that makes this chicken sizzle.
Updated Aug 2, 2010

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup frozen (thawed) orange juice concentrate
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons grated orange peel
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 clove garlic, finely chopped
  • 6 boneless skinless chicken breasts (about 1 3/4 lb)

Steps

  • 1
    In shallow glass or plastic dish or resealable food-storage plastic bag, mix all ingredients except chicken. Add chicken; turn to coat with marinade. Cover dish or seal bag; refrigerate, turning chicken occasionally, at least 2 hours but no longer than 24 hours.
  • 2
    Heat gas or charcoal grill. Remove chicken from marinade; reserve marinade. Place chicken on grill over medium heat. Cover grill; cook 15 to 20 minutes, turning chicken and brushing with marinade occasionally, until juice of chicken is clear when center of thickest part is cut (170°F).
  • 3
    Heat remaining marinade to boiling; boil and stir 1 minute. Serve with chicken.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    For extra-moist grilled chicken, use tongs instead of a fork to turn the pieces. A fork will pierce the meat and let too many of the juices run out, drying the chicken.
