This grilled chicken recipe has bright flavors, a wonderful color, and it’s incredibly healthy. Fire up your grill and get this one on your plate soon!
My husband gets a few things given to him from clients every year that we obviously appreciate but sometimes wonder what we are going to do with it. One year we got a crystal sherry decanter. It was lovely but it had a tacky plastic ‘brass’ name plate on it bearing the companies logo. I tried to pry it off…ya, that didn’t work. Plus, I mean…who drinks sherry anyway? Who, these days, has decanters sitting on a cart in the parlor (no judgement)? Nobody, unless you are in a Soap Opera ???? I appreciate that they went to the expense and time to give him something but some of this stuff obviously came from the ‘re-gift shelf’ !
Come on now…you all know you have one. You don’t? OK, I guess it’s just me.
Well, moving on. We were given a few boxes of citrus from family and co-workers. A lot of it actually. This came at the right time and I have been eating a ton of it. I am trying to tell myself that it will help me get over this…whatever..I have. I have made a cake, smoothies, a salad and this orange basil grilled chicken recipe with our mother lode!
This is a great dish to make in the winter when oranges and lemons are ripe and fresh and when you just need a bit of sunshine in your life. I do make this more in warmer months because it is so light and healthy, though. BUT, if you need to add a healthy yet easy meal to your winter rotation then I have one for you. Plus, I bet we all need a vitamin C boost!
I grilled this chicken because I am a bit odd..I grill in the winter. Really, as long as it’s not pouring rain I will use the grill. We have even been known to wheel it near the garage just to get out of the elements. I only recommend this if you have a big garage with good ventilation like we do but back to the food…I digress ????
