  1. Whisk together the orange juice, lime juice, honey, and red pepper flakes in a bowl, and pour into a resealable plastic bag. Add the chicken, coat with the marinade, squeeze out excess air, and seal the bag. Marinate in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.
  2. Preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat, and lightly oil the grate.
  3. Remove the chicken from the marinade, and shake off excess. Discard the remaining marinade. Place the chicken on the grill and cook the chicken breasts until no longer pink in the center and the juices run clear, about 6 to 8 minutes per side. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C). Top with cilantro and serve.

The chicken was moist and flavorful. Next time we'll make a larger batch of marinade and substitute some marinade for part of the water required to make a batch of (brown) rice. The meal was a...

I used fresh squeezed orange juice and the juice of one lime as my lime wasn't very juicy. Like other reviewers, I added the zest of half the orange and lime. Unlike other reviewers, we did no...

Just made this tonight and it turned out great! My family loved it. I used a juice blend I had in the fridge, an orange/mango/peach juice and the half of squeezed lime. The only other thing I...

I think this marinade is excellent! I did use a full lime, though, to bring out some full more flavor. excellent!

I made this tonight for the first time and my boyfriend and I LOVED it. Out of all the chicken recipes I've taken off this site, this one had the best flavor. I used more honey, marinaded for ab...
