This chicken did not turn out like I had envisioned it. It tasted WONDERFUL, so that was not the problem. The problem is how it looks. Oh, it looks good, but not the way I pictured it. It was supposed to be caramelized looking.... sticky looking..... That obviously did not happen. A fault I cannot give to anything or anyone but myself. Just a few amateur mistakes is all.. no biggie. That aside, this was absolutely delicious! Simple, easy, and if you follow the recipe that Mary (One Perfect Bite) actually posted, you'll get a much better looking result :)
Sticky Grilled Chicken
Adapted from Mary, One Perfect Bite
- Serves 2 -
1/4 cup orange marmalade
1 teaspoon cider vinegar
1 teaspoon honey
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
1/8 teaspoon ground ginger
1/8 teaspoon Chinese five spice
2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
In a measuring cup, add the marmalade and microwave about 10 seconds, or until it mixes easily. Add all remaining ingredients, except the chicken, and stir until well combined. Remove 2 Tablespoons of mixture and set aside. Place chicken in resealable bag and pour remaining marinade over it. Seal bag and place in refrigerator for 4 hours.
Preheat grill to 375 degrees F. Clean and oil grill grates. Remove chicken from bag and discard marinade. Place chicken over direct heat and grill for 5 minutes and then flip chicken and allow to cook another 5 minutes. Baste the chicken with the sauce mixture, flip and grill another 3 minutes. Baste the chicken again, flip and grill another 2 minutes or until the chicken has reached an internal temperature of 165 degrees F. Remove from grill and allow to rest before serving. Enjoy!
