You know you've been feeding your family too much chicken when they stop asking "WHAT''s for dinner" and they start asking "What kind of CHICKEN are we having tonight?" That one hurt just a little - but in all honesty - I do feed my family a LOT of chicken.
Finding new ways to fix the chicken is what keeps dinner interesting. Adding in the fresh flavors of the season makes our ordinary chicken dinners even better. Fresh lemons, limes and oranges really brighten up this Grilled Citrus Chicken dinner.
Grilled Citrus Chicken
7 Tablespoons oil
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 1/2 teaspoons sugar
salt and pepper
4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1 teaspoon mayonnaise
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
1 Tablespoon fresh mint, minced
Add chicken breasts and refrigerate 1-24 hours.
Place on grill and cook until internal temperature reaches 165. Slice fruit in half and place on hot grill also.
Remove chicken from grill and place on platter. Tent with and let rest 10 minutes.
Slice chicken and drizzle with sauce.
This chicken dinner was REALLY yummy. I loved the citrus drizzle and the sprinkling of mint. This chicken dinner just tasted like summer. (Oh, and the grilled orange was just the icing on this grilled chicken dinner.)
It would be so much easier if everyone in my family loved chicken as much as I do. No complaints over this chicken recipe though. We all loved it.
