This was not too bad.  I thought it had a lot of citrus flavor to it.  You can definitely taste the orange in it.  I loved the broccoli!  The two together fit quite well.  I will probably only make the broccoli again, not the chicken.  It was great to try though!  The other people who ate dinner with me said it was scrumptious.

Citrus Honey Grilled Chicken


4 boneless chicken breasts

1/3 cups of orange juice

1/4 cup of lime juice

1/4 cup of lemon juice

3 Tbl honey

2 Tbl olive oil

1/2 tsp hot sauce

1 Tbl dried oregano


Pound chicken breasts to equal thickness.   In a medium zip lock bag mix together the juices, honey, olive oil, oregano, and hot sauce.  Add chicken and let marinate in the frig for at least 30 minutes.  Remove the chicken and boil the marinade on the stove for 10 minutes to baste the chicken with while it is grilling.  Grill the chicken and baste it frequently for 20 minutes or until fully cooked.

Orange Scented Broccoli



1 navel orange, remove rind and save

salt and pepper

3 Tbl olive oil

2 shallots sliced thin

1/3 cups of orange juice


Boil a few inches of water in a large skillet and add the broccoli, orange rind, and salt.  Cover and simmer for 4 minutes. Drain the water and remove the rind.  Return the pan to heat and add olive oil.  Heat over medium heat.  Add shallots and cook 3 minutes.  Add broccoli and stir.  Then, add orange juice and stir.   Simmer for 1 minute.  Serve and add salt and pepper to your desire.
