Yield: 4 servings

Prep Time: 20 minutes + marinating time

Cook Time: 15 to 20 minutes


  • 2 tablespoons finely minced orange zest
  • 3/4 cup freshly squeezed orange juice
  • 1/2 cup red wine vinegar
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 6 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 cup minced green onions (white & green parts)
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon hot red pepper flakes
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts (about 1 1/2 pounds)


  1. Combine all ingredients (except chicken) in large zip bag. Blend well; add chicken, cover and refrigerate for 2 to 4 hours (if you want to marinate it longer, hold off on adding the salt until just before cooking).
