Three Citrus Chicken

A little labor intensive for my usual style of cooking, but very worth it! Summer tastes combine with a little savory, tangy and sweet with this great grilled chicken dish!

Method:

Ingredients

4
chicken breast halves, skinless and boneless
1
red onion, sliced into rings
1/3 c
orange juice
1/4 c
lemon juice
1/4 c
extra virgin olive oil
1/4 c
honey
1/4 c
frozen lemonade concentrate, thawed (or 1 scoop of instant lemonade mix)
3 Tbsp
lime juice
3 Tbsp
chopped fresh mint leaves
1 Tbsp
grated fresh orange peel
2 tsp
grated fresh lemon peel
1 1/4 tsp
grated fresh lime peel
1/4 tsp
ground cumin
1/4 tsp
cinnamon
1/8 tsp
salt
1/8 tsp
pepper

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Rinse and trim chicken breasts and place in a 1 quart freezer ziplock bag or other covered marinade bowl. Add sliced red onions.
2
Add remaining ingredients and toss to coat chicken and onion rings. Refrigerate and let marinade at least 2 hours or overnight.
3
I like to put the chicken in the marinade without the onions and freeze for use during a weekday. If doing this, take out of the freezer the night before using and refrigerate. Add onions and toss to coat about 2-4 hours before grilling time.
4
Heat barbecue grill to medium high. Remove chicken and onions to the grill, reserving marinade to a small pan. You may want to use a vegetable tray or foil pouch with holes for the onions on the grill.
5
Heat reserved marinade and bring to a boil. Baste chicken with marinade and turn occasionally. Continue to cook chicken until cooked through and juices run clear, about 11 minutes.
6
Transfer chicken to serving plate with onions and pour over or serve with any remaining marinade.
