Ingredients:

  • 2 lbs boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup freshly squeezed orange juice
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil

Instructions:

  1. In a small bowl, whisk together the olive oil, lemon juice, orange juice, basil, parsley, garlic, salt, and pepper.
  2. Place the chicken breasts in a large resealable bag or in a shallow dish. Pour the marinade over the chicken, making sure it is well coated. Marinate the chicken in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours, or up to 8 hours.
  3. Preheat your grill to medium-high heat.
  4. Remove the chicken from the marinade and discard any excess marinade. Grill the chicken for 10-15 minutes per side, or until it is cooked through and the internal temperature reaches 165Ā°F.
  5. Serve the grilled chicken with your favorite winter sides, such as roasted vegetables or mashed potatoes. Enjoy!
