Honey Orange Chicken

From the kitchen of Kevin Taylor, the BBQ Guru

The kids will eat chicken when I make it sweet for them…this is the result of my latest quest!

4 boneless chicken breasts
1/4 cup honey
2 tablespoons frozen orange juice concentrate
1 teaspoon orange zest
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon red pepper, crushed

Combine honey, OJ, zest, garlic, salt and pepper flakes.

Grill breasts so the meat temp is 160 degrees F. It doesn’t take long!!

Near the end, apply a generous coating to both sides, sear so the sugars start to caramelize.

Serve with remaining sauce spooned over meat.

If you want to do this on the stove top…In skillet, heat 1 teaspoon oil and 1 tablespoon margarine. Add breasts and cook 4 minutes, turn and cook another 4 minutes.

Pour honey mixture over chicken and cook until thickened. Coat both sides of chicken with honey mixture. Serve with sauce spooned over breasts.
