  • 2 Tbsp chopped fresh orange segments
  • 1/4 cup orange juice
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 2 tsp lime juice
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 tsp dried thyme
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 1 tsp salt (optional)
  • 1 lb boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into ΒΌ - inch strips


In a resealable plastic bag or shallow glass container, combine oranges, orange juice, olive oil, lime juice, garlic, thyme, oregano, and salt.

Add chicken and turn to coat. Seal or cover and refrigerate for 1 hour. Drain and discard marinade.

Grill, uncovered, over medium-high heat for 6 to 8 minutes or until juices run clear, turning often.


To save time, you can make a large batch, divide it and put in freezer bags. Thaw, and the chicken is automatically marinated.
