Back to the Real World

We're finally all unpacked and getting ready to head back to the real world. I picked a few tasty looking grilled recipes to try this week. Tonight we tried some grilled BBQ chicken with a tangy orange twist. Very good! I'm looking forward to the leftovers tomorrow.

Citrus Barbecued Chicken Breasts
1-1/2 cups Barbecue Sauce
1 Tbsp. grated orange peel
1/3 cup orange juice
6 large boneless skinless chicken breast halves (about 2 lb.)

Mix barbecue sauce, orange peel and juice. Reserve 1/2 cup of the barbecue sauce mixture. Pour remaining barbecue sauce mixture into shallow baking dish. Add chicken; turn to evenly coat both sides of each chicken breast. Cover.

Refrigerate 30 min. to marinate. Drain; discard marinade.

Preheat greased grill to medium heat. Grill chicken 12 to 15 min. or until tender and no longer pink in centers (170°F), turning and brushing occasionally with the reserved 1/2 cup barbecue sauce mixture after 8 min.
