Orange- Ginger Grilled Chicken Thighs

Really easy recipe with great flavor too. The chicken turns out very moist.


1/3 cup orange juice
3 Tablespoons rice wine vinegar
3 Tablespoons light soy sauce
1 Tablespoon minced garlic
1 Tablespoon minced fresh ginger
1 Tablespoon sesame oil
Eight 4-ounce skinned and boned chicken thighs
fresh cilantro sprigs and orange slices for garnish


1. Combine orange juice and next 5 ingredients in a shallow dish or large zip-top freezer bag; add chicken. Cover or seal, and chill at least 1 hour, turning occasionally.

2. Remove chicken thighs from marinade, and discard marinade.

3. Grill, covered with grill lid, over medium-high heat (350° to 400°) 4 minutes on each side or until done. Garnish, if desired.


*If you're preparing this recipe as gluten free, just be sure to use a brand of soy sauce that is known to be GF.

    I made this chicken last night for my hubby and I. The chicken was delicious, very moist and have a very good flavor. I did marinate it for one day and not just one hour. I will be making this recipe again soon.
