Your rating: None Average: 3.9 (38 votes)

The simple, sweet orange glaze for the chicken can be whipped up fast; marinating time is just 15 minutes and the marinade caramelizes deliciously on the grill. Serve this with carrot sticks and baked potato wedges, tossed with herbs and olive oil.



READER'S COMMENT:
"I found this recipe to be weak in flavor; the orange juice didn't seem to come through much at all. "
