Grilled Orange Chicken Strips Recipe

Grilled Orange Chicken Strips Recipe

These savory marinated chicken strips are great for a picnic or backyard barbecue. I grill them right along with sausages and hot dogs. Skewering the chicken makes it easy to handle, but you can put the strips directly on the grill or broil them in the oven if you prefer. -Marion Lowery, Medford, Oregon
