YAY! I made it through last week! It was touch and go there for a little while, but I made it. I worked a ton of extra hours, had some emotional ups and downs, but alas... here I am, another week and I'm ready to go :) One good thing that did happen - they hired a replacement for my boss. How do I feel about my new boss? I don't know. It's hard to tell until we actually start working together and that will happen today......so I'll keep you updated. I'm hoping for only the best, but of course am still worried. I mean, what if he's an ass?? I wonder if I can sweet talk him with some homemade goodies? Hmmmm... sucking up... now that's a thought :)
Anyway, on with the food!!!
Simple. I hate to keep using that word over and over again, but I can't help myself. I love sharing recipes with you that take little to no time in the kitchen. Even though I love to cook there are nights where the task seems incredibly daunting. This is a meal you can make in under 30 minutes if you marinated the chicken the night before. Add a wonderful side salad and some bread and you have the perfect light weeknight meal.
Orange Honey Grilled Chicken
Created by Jenn's Food Journey
1 lbs chicken - breasts, thighs - skin on, skin off - bone in, no bone - it's your choice
1/2 cup orange marmalade
1/4 cup honey
1 Tablespoon low sodium soy sauce
1 Tablespoon orange juice
1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
In a bowl, mix together all the ingredients except the chicken. Rinse the chicken and pat dry. Place chicken in a shallow dish or a resealable bag and pour the marinade over it. Seal and place in fridge over night (minimum hours to marinate = 4).
When ready to grill chicken. Preheat grill to 375 degrees F. Oil grill grates. Place the chicken directly on the grates and cook for 6-8 minutes per side or until the chicken is cooked through. Remove from grill and allow to rest for 3-5 minutes before cutting into. Enjoy!
