Ingredients

  • 1/4 Cup orange juice
  • 1/4 Cup soy sauce
  • 1/4 Cup vegetable oil
  • 2 Tablespoons sesame seeds
  • 1 Tablespoon garlic powder
  • 1 Tablespoon ground ginger
  • 1 Tablespoon orange zest
  • 1/2 Teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • 1 1/2 Pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts

Directions

Mix all ingredients except chicken in medium bowl. Reserve 2 tablespoons marinade for brushing.

Place chicken in large resealable bag. Add remaining marinade; turn to coat well. Massage chicken and marinade for 4 to 5 minutes. Remove chicken from marinade. Discard any remaining marinade.

Grill chicken over medium heat 6 to 7 minutes per side or until cooked through, brushing with reserved marinade. Discard any remaining 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.
