Ingredients

  • 1 can (6 ounces) frozen orange juice concentrate, thawed
  • 3/4 cup maple syrup
  • 4 teaspoons canola oil
  • 3/4 teaspoon curry powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 6 boneless skinless chicken breast halves (1-1/2 pounds)
  • 2 medium sweet red peppers, halved and seeded
  • 1 medium green pepper, halved and seeded
  • 3 medium zucchini, halved lengthwise
  • 1 fresh pineapple, peeled and cut into 1/2-inch slices
  • 2 unpeeled medium oranges, cut into 1/2-in slices

Directions

In a small bowl, combine the orange juice concentrate, syrup, oil, curry and cayenne. Place chicken in a large resealable plastic bag; add half of the marinade. Seal bag and turn to coat. Place the peppers, zucchini, pineapple and oranges in another resealable bag; add remaining marinade. Seal bag and turn to coat. Refrigerate chicken and vegetables for 8 hours or overnight, turning occasionally.
Drain chicken and discard marinade. Drain vegetables and fruits, reserving marinade for basting. Grill the chicken, vegetables and fruits, uncovered, over medium heat for 3 minutes on each side.

"This was quite good. I used real maple syrup and included the oranges but I will probably leave them out next time. They weren't as good as the pineapple. That's a good idea to save some marinade and make a glaze. I'm going to try that next time."

"good recipe. I I skipped the oranges, as I did not have them that day. I also used no sugar maple syrup instead of regular. The second time I made this, I thickened the veggie marinade ,last minute to make more of a glaze. Next time I make a bit extra marinate and thicken 1/3 of it to save as a glaze during last 5-6 min of cooking"
