Original recipe yields 4 servings

Directions

  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.

Tasty, however it really didn't have the wonderful citrus flavor I was expecting - even with 24 hours of marinating. I loved the idea of this, using orange juice paired with lime. I even added a bit of orange and lime zest to heighten the citrus flavor. It's mildly sweet and does have some citrus flavor, but in the end the heat from the red pepper flakes prevailed....

Tasty and moist grilled chicken, but would have liked more of the citrus flavor. Marinated for about three hours, but next time, I'll try putting the chicken in the marinade in the morning for an evening meal.

This was pretty good, soft and juicy, although i made a few adjustments to the marinade. I added 1 tsp of cumin and about 3 tbsp of olive oil. I find that by adding a it of oil the marinade and flavors stick to the chicken better. I would make this recipe again it was quite easy.
