Citrus Grilled Chicken

I was reminded today that grilling season is nearly here. I'm celebrating that with my favorite grilled chicken recipe.

In a leak proof container, add the following:
1 TBSP olive oil
zest and juice of 1 lime
2 garlic cloves, minced
zest and juice of 1 orange
1 bunch of chopped cilantro
1 tsp salt
1 tsp black pepper or several peppercorns
4 chicken breasts

Add enough orange juice to cover all chicken breast and stir all ingredients well. Let set in fridge for 24 hours. Grill and enjoy.

This is a great recipe to use for fajitas. For a little spice, add fresh sliced jalapenos to the marinade.

Add a slice of grilled pineapple for a Hawaiin chicken sandwich. Great served over a bed of rice with some fresh pico over the top.
