Glazed Herb Chicken Recipe

The orange flavor really comes through in the sauce that nicely coats this grilled chicken. I like to garnish it with fresh orange segments and a sprinkling of green chives for a pretty look. —Jill Smith of Irmo, South Carolina
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. + marinating Grill: 10 min. YIELD:4 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 can (14-1/2 ounces) chicken broth
  • 3/4 cup orange juice concentrate
  • 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons grated orange peel
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried minced onion

  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1 medium navel orange, peeled and sectioned
  • 3 cups hot cooked rice

Directions

  • 1. In a bowl, combine the first nine ingredients. Remove 1 cup for sauce; cover and refrigerate. Place the chicken in a large resealable plastic bag; add the remaining marinade. Seal bag and turn to coat; refrigerate for 2-8 hours, turning occasionally. Drain and discard marinade.
