Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup orange juice, about 2 oranges
  • 1 tbsp orange zest
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 4 tsp minced ginger
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • skinless, boneless chicken breasts
  • oranges, halved

Instructions

  • Preheat barbecue to medium.
  • Whisk juice with zest, honey, ginger and salt in a large shallow bowl. Pour half into a small bowl and reserve. Add chicken breasts to juice mixture in large bowl. Let stand at room temperature for 15 min, flipping halfway.
  • Oil grill, then barbecue chicken, with lid closed, basting often with marinating liquid, for 6 min. Flip and continue grilling, without basting, until springy when pressed, 6 to 8 more min. Add oranges to the grill, cut-side down, for the last 5 min. Drizzle reserved orange mixture on chicken and serve with grilled oranges and Minted zucchini salad.

AROMATIC CHICKEN | CRISP CHARDONNAY
This chardonnay offers just a touch of toasty oak that complements but doesn’t overwhelm the delicate fruit and spice of Sticky Honey-Ginger Chicken. It’s brisk and clean with pear and citrus, followed by a silky finish. Plus, it’s a bargain!
Kressmann Selection Chardonnay, France, $9.

  1. I have made this recipe many times and it is amazing. The chicken stays extremely moist and the honey leaves a fabulous light crispiness…one of my all time favorite recipes and so easy to make!
