Barbecued citrus chicken

    40 minutes

    My family loves this dish - chicken breasts marinated in lime juice, orange juice, lemon juice, mint and honey. Allow time to marinate overnight.

    Used different ingredients. My family wanted a healthy BBQ for Father's Day this year so I served this dish. The only difference I made was I added the rind of the orange, lemon, and lime, as well as the juice from the fruits. The strongest citrus flavours are in the rind. My husband barbecued this and while it turned out good, a few of the breasts got "blackened" from the barbecuing. The few chicken breasts I have left over will be baked in the oven. I'm curious to see the difference in the bbq'd vs. the baked. A perfect dish for summertime!  -  29 Sep 2008


    First time cooking it on the BBQ for an extended family lunch. Added the rind of the lemon, orange and lime as well for added flavor. Cooked it on the BBQ, the chicken was moist and flavoursome. We loved it.  -  21 Dec 2015


    the chicken was good, but it was missing something. it just seemed very plain. a sauce would be nice, but i can't think of any that would be a good addition. any suggestions?  -  29 Sep 2008
