I’m back! I’ve been at Girl’s Camp for a week then Lake Powell with my family but now I am back in my kitchen and ready to cook! Here is a fabulous recipe for grilled chicken that I tried prior to going out of town – it is really good. Since I was fresh out of wildflower honey, I used honey out of my good old honey bear! :) The marinade is amazing and chicken always tastes better grilled on on the bbq, wouldn’t you agree?! Hope you enjoy!
Citrus-and-Honey Chicken Breasts
3 Tb snipped fresh chives or finely chopped green onion
1 Tb chopped fresh mint
2 Tb olive oil
2 Tb wildflower honey
6 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves
Salt and freshly ground pepper
To make citrus-honey marinade, finely shred the zest from the orange, lemon, and lime, then squeeze the juice from each fruit. (For the zest, be sure to grate only the colored part of the rind – leaving the bitter, white pith behind) Stir together juice and zest with the chives, mint, oil and honey. Reserve 2 Tb of marinade. Use the palm of your hand to flatten each chicken breast to an even thickness of about 3/4 inch. Season the chicken on both sides with salt and pepper. Marinate chicken 1 to 4 hours, turning occasionally. Remove from frig 30 minutes before grilling. Grill chicken over medium-high heat 4-6 min per side, brushing with reserved marinade.
