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 pounded the chicken down thin as instructed and poked it with a fork. I put everything into a ziploc bag and let it go for 8 hours. It smelled great and tasted even better. It's sweet yet has just a mild kick with nice citrus flavor. Plus the chicken has a beautiful color to it. And as the submitter suggested I served it with warm tortillas homemade salsa guacamole and warm black beans topped with a dollup of sour cream for a Southwestern flair. What's great about this recipe is you could easily take this and add some cumin and curry (1/4 tsp. each) to the marinade then serve with couscous to give a Middle Eastern flair. This is a definite keeper!
This was everything we expected it to be as it was yummiliciously citrusy and quite flavourful. However this isn't too great to eat on its own (according to me) and would do justice if added to salads or served on tortillas with salsa. Whilst I'll keep that in mind next time I think I will also add some chopped cilantro to the marinade....and perhaps allow the chicken to sit in the marinade overnight. Nevertheless good recipe.:) Thanks Osider760!
I'm always on the lookout for easy grilled chicken recipes and this one is just right. Made this tonight for the first time LOVED it! Served with grilled sweet potatoes and a tossed salad w/Balsamic vinaigrette. The dinner was just perfect for Florida summers and it WAS better than El Pollo Loco as another reviewer mentioned. I'll definitely use it for a taco filling with just some cilantro jalapeño onion and queso fresco. Yum! Hubby suggested the marinade would make a great reduction and I agree. And such a versatile jumping-off recipe - it could work well with a little pineapple juice or extra honey to give it an island flair. I halved the recipe for 3 people omitted the coriander (didn't have any) and used full amount of red pepper for kick. Biggest surprise - we could taste each citrus component. LOVE THIS RECIPE! Call me goofy but I think it would make superb fish tacos too.
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 have been better as the coriander powder didn't seem to add much. I'm always throwing garlic in grilled chicken marinades so it was good to be restrained by the recipe. It had a nice clean fresh taste.
Made this for the Recipe Group: 26 March '11. Loved this citrus flavored chicken. We had it hot the first night right off the girll and it was very good. I really enjoyed it the next day cold and chopped on a salad. My husband reheated it for dinner and commented that he thought the citrus flavors came through even stronger than the first night. This was marinated for about 10 hours. Not sure what coriander is - but could only find whole coriander. I just broke/smashed it up with the back of a spoon. This will be great to use during the summer months and definitely worth putting in your recipe box. Thanks Osider760 for sharing.
