Recipe of the Week: Citrus Grilled Chicken


I don’t know about you but when the temps rise I do not want to be chained to the stove. So in our latest Recipe of the Week we take the kitchen outside and fire up the grill.

On the menu: Citrus Grilled Chicken.

Chicken can be so blah, but a flavorful marinade is such an easy way to pump up the flavor. In this case we make the most of fresh oranges and limes, but you could mix it up any which way you please with lemons, clementines, tangerines, etc.

Plus you can double the recipe and make extra for an easy lunch option the next day or even dinner later in the week. It’s delicious versatility.

Grilled Citrus Chicken
Serves 4


  • Zest and juice from 1 orange

  • ½ teaspoon ground cumin

  5. Remove chicken from marinade, sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  6. Cook the breasts on the grill 3-6 minutes per side, until it’s no longer pink inside.
