Grilled Chicken With Orange Glaze

8 chicken breasts

1/4 cup orange juice

2 tablespoons orange-blossom honey


3 tablespoons olive oil

2 tablespoons good-quality, aged balsamic vinegar

3 large cloves garlic

2 tablespoons orange juice

2 teaspoons orange zest strips

2 tablespoons fresh rosemary, or 1 tablespoon dried

2 teaspoons fresh oregano, or 1 teaspoon dried

1/4 cup dry white wine, such as a pinot grigio or sauvignon blanc

1 teaspoon sugar

1 teaspoon freshly cracked black pepper

1. Place all marinade ingredients in blender and blend well.

2. Place chicken in a sealable plastic bag (or a glass baking pan). Pour marinade over chicken. Turn to coat and seal (or cover) and refrigerate, for 4 to 8 hours.

3. Remove chicken from refrigerator about 1/2 hour before cooking. Heat grill. Grill for 25-30 minutes until done, turning 2-3 times during cooking.

4. While chicken cooks, pour seasoned marinade ingredients into a small saucepan. Add 1/4 cup orange juice and honey. Bring mixture to a boil and let reduce slightly. Brush chicken with glaze near the end of cooking.

Yield: 8 servings.
