More with Chicken...

Here's yet another yummy dinner idea that came about as I was perusing some of my favorite food blogs. I saw a recipe on Joelen's blog for Giada's garlic and citrus chicken and thought the flavor combo sounded good. I didn't have a whole chicken to make the recipe exactly as it stated so I decided to turn it into a marinade for boneless skinless chicken breasts and grill them instead. They turned out really great! The citrus in the marinade really came through in the flavor of the chicken and also caramelized nicely to create a golden brown "crust" as it grilled. We had these for dinner tonight with roasted red potatoes and green beans steamed with garlic cloves.

Here's how I made the marinade

1/3 cup orange juice
1/4 cup lemon juice
1/2 cup chicken broth
4-5 cloves garlic, crushed
1 tsp dried oregano

Place chicken breasts (I did 2) in a bowl. Combine juices and chicken broth and pour over the chicken. Sprinkle the top of the chicken with oregano and garlic. Refrigerate, covered, for a couple hours or over night, turning chicken in the marinade periodically. Remove from marinade and grill or bake until done.

yum! I have been meaning to try Giada's chicken for a while but I never remember to buy a whole chicken. Looks really delicious!

Whoops - commented to the wrong entry. I meant the KA, not the chicken ;) Though the chicken is my dinner inspiration, so thanks!
