Citrus Grilled Chicken

As I mentioned in my last post the weather here has been beautiful all weekend. John and I spent the weekend shopping for patio furniture which put me in the mood for something grilled or barbecued. Unfortunately we haven't found a grill yet so I am still using my grill pan but it does the trick. I decided to go with this recipe for marinated chicken breasts. It was light and well seasoned with a citrus kick. Perfect for a beautiful sunny Sunday.


4 chicken breast halves, skinned and boned
2 cloves minced garlic
1 1/2 teaspoons chicken bouillon granule (I used a few tablespoons of chicken broth)
1 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
1/4 cup lime juice
1/4 cup lemon juice
1/3 cup orange juice
1/2 teaspoon basil
1/2 teaspoon oregano
1/2 teaspoon rosemary


1. Combine all the condiments and juices to make a marinade; mix well.
2. Add the chicken and marinate in the refrigerator for about 2 hours.
3. Grill over medium heat for about 10 minutes on each side (or until fully cooked).

  1. I'm always looking for ways to prepare chicken and this looks delicious!

  2. I just made this Citrus Grilled Chicken and I really loved the 'summer' flavor it had. I think it's missing something though - maybe a sauce of some kind (I really LOVE sauces)? This chicken recipe would taste great if you topped a salad with it or as a sandwich on a french roll with swiss cheese, lettuce, and tomato. Yum!
