San Diego Grilled Chicken Recipe

Description

This is a Southern California version of sweet and sour chicken, marinated and grilled with a little extra spice. Serve with cilantro, salsa, guacamole, black beans, and flour tortillas warmed on the grill.

Ingredients

  • 2 fruit, (2-5/8" dia, sphere)s oranges, zested and juiced
  • 2 fruit, without seeds lemons, zested and juiced
  • 2 fruit (2" dia)s limes, zested and juiced
  • 1 teaspoon ground coriander
  • ½ teaspoon dried red pepper flakes
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • ¼ cup wildflower honey
  • 6 eaches skinless, boneless chicken breast halves - pounded to about 3/4-inch thickness
  • salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

  1. Stir the orange zest, orange juice, lemon zest, lemon juice, lime zest, lime juice, coriander, red pepper flakes, olive oil, and honey together in a shallow dish. Remove about 1/4 cup of the mixture and set aside for later. Add the chicken breasts to the remaining marinade, turning to coat both sides. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate, turning occasionally, 1 to 4 hours.
  2. Preheat an outdoor grill for high heat, and lightly oil the grate. Remove the chicken breasts from the marinade; discard the marinade.
  3. Basting frequently with the reserved sauce, cook the chicken on the preheated grill until no longer pink in the center and the juices run clear, about 5 minutes per side. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).
