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!

How to Make Three Citrus Chicken


  • 1Rinse and trim chicken breasts and place in a 1 quart freezer ziplock bag or other covered marinade bowl. Add sliced red onions.
  • 2Add remaining ingredients and toss to coat chicken and onion rings. Refrigerate and let marinade at least 2 hours or overnight.
  • 3I 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.
  • 4Heat 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.
  • 5Heat 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.
  • 6Transfer chicken to serving plate with onions and pour over or serve with any remaining marinade.
