step-by-step directions
step-by-step directions
  • For the Chicken: Whisk together the marinade ingredients in a rimmed baking dish. Add the chicken and turn to coat. Allow chicken to marinate for up to 30 mins at room temperature.
  • Meanwhile, preheat the grill to medium-high. Remove the chicken from the marinade and place on the grill. Cook for 3 to 4 minutes on the first side then flip and continue to cook for 3 to 4 more minutes. Chicken should register 160ºF on a instant read thermometer when cooked. Remove from grill and serve with Orange and Romaine Salad.
  • For the Salad: In a large bowl, whisk together the orange juice, Dijon, oregano, honey and olive oil. Season with cayenne, salt and pepper. Toss together the remaining ingredients with the dressing.
  • Tips: 1. Depending on how much heat you like, use as much or as little cayenne pepper in the marinade and the salad dressing.
    2. Don’t marinate chicken for more than 30 minutes or the citrus from the orange juice will start to break it down.
    3. Try using pineapple in the salad instead of orange.
