San Diego Grilled Chicken

Osider760

"This is a Southern California version of sweet and sour chicken, marinated and grilled with a little extra spice. Great for all barbeque lovers. I usually serve cut into lengths with fresh cilantro, homemade salsa, guacamole, black beans, and flour tortillas warmed on the grill. A little good Southern California karma never hurts anyone. This recipe is light enough to offset the first 2 margaritas. GO CHARGERS!!!"

  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).

Fabulous! This a wonderful marinade for grilled chicken. I loved the idea of using fresh citrus juice! I did add some minced garlic - the equivalent of about one clove just for good measure. I p...

The family loved this chicken, and the citrus was a nice twist on chicken fajita's,

I loved grating the zest from all the citrus. Love the bright colors and fresh flavor. Easy marinade that scores big points!

Made this for the Recipe Group. Good strong citrus flavor. I left out the honey as I didn't see the need for extra sweet and didn't baste. If I had had some fresh coriander I think that would ...

This is so far the best marinated grilled chicken I have made! Love all the citrus flavors, so refreshing. Went perfect sliced up on a nice big salad :)

I was surprised, but I did like this. I served it with a baked potato. The citrus flavors was a refreshing change for a bbq chicken.

It was very easy and had great flavor (marinaded for 4 hours). Served the chicken with a baked sweet potato.
