We do a lot of grilling around here. As long as it's not raining I love to grill.
And because I make a homemade lunch every day for anywhere from 2 - 5 adults I am always looking for something new for lunch.
They say necessity is the mother of invention and that's how this recipe was invented. It was a NECESSITY that I not make another dang turkey sandwich for lunch again! For awhile at least, lol.
This is such a simple marinade for a delicious chicken dish that can be used in salads, wraps, sandwiches, or eaten as the main course.
Here's what you need:
1 orange juiced
2 limes juiced
1/2 cup canola oil
1/3 cup low sodium soy sauce
4 garlic cloves sliced
3 tsp. ground ginger (fresh may be used in its place)
1/2 tsp onion powder
3 Tbs. honey
2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. fresh ground black pepper
1-2 pounds chicken, I use boneless thin cut breasts
Place all the ingredients in a bowl or 2 cup glass measuring cup and whisk until combined.
Place the chicken in a zip top gallon size baggie and pour the marinade over the chicken.
Zip the baggie closed and squish it around to distribute the marinade. I double bag it just to be safe.
Place in the refrigerator and let marinate overnight or up to a couple of days. Turn the bag over every 8 hours.
Preheat barbecue to 375 degrees and place the chicken on the grill. Cook 4-5 minutes per side for thin cut breasts and longer for dark meat. Use a meat thermometer to check the internal temperature. Chicken must be cooked to an internal temperature of 165 degrees to be safe.
Grill with the lid closed.
When the chicken is cooked through remove to a platter and let sit for a few minutes before cutting.
Delicious in salads, wraps, sandwiches, or just as a main course.
Serves as much as you cook :)
