Ingredients

  • 1 Pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 Cup freshly squeezed orange juice
  • 3 cloves garlic, pressed
  • 1 Tablespoon herbes de provence
  • 2 Tablespoons agave nectar or honey
  • 1 Teaspoon sea salt, preferably Celtic
  • 1 Tablespoon chipotle chile powder

Directions

Place the chicken in a 9-by-13-inch baking dish. Pour the orange juice over the chicken breasts.

In a small bowl, combine the garlic, herbes de provence, agave, salt, and chipotle powder, then rub the mixture onto the chicken breasts. Marinate the chicken in the refrigerator, for up to 5 hours.

Preheat a gas grill or cast-iron grill pan on medium heat.

Place the chicken breasts on a plate, and reserve the marinade. Grill the chicken until it reaches an internal temperature of 165 degrees, about 6-8 minutes. Meanwhile, transfer the marinade to a saucepan and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and cook for 10-15 minutes. Serve the chicken with the marinade.

Grill Shopping Tip

Think twice before buying a thicker piece of meat; a 2-inch thick steak takes four times (not twice) as long as 1-inch thick steak to cook.

Grill Cooking Tip

If you're cooking something that's been marinated, make sure to pat the item dry before it hits the grill. Any sugar in the marinade will burn.
