Orange Basil Chicken
I'm participating in What's for dinner Wednesday? visit the Gluten Free Homemaker for links to more great ideas.
I bought 3 split chicken breast for under $3 recently so this meal is a deal!
Here's what went in the Ziploc bag to marrinate:
1 small onion chopped
1 shallot chopped (I love shallots, a little like an onion a little like garlic..perfect)
I had some Trader Joes Orange Muscat Champagne Vinagar so I put some of that in there (the first time I used rice vinegar, about 1/4 cup)
some olive oil - I didn't measure - enough to coat the chicken (I put this in the bag first)
about a cup of OJ
and some fresh basil (I just grabed what my little plant could spare and squezed so the leaves would produce some oil and threw them in.)
Oh, and I cut up an orange I had and zested half of it and threw it in but I didn't do this the first time I made this.
You can marinate this all day or just an hour. If you do it longer it is good baked, shorter does good on the grill. I like it grilled either way. But I just like grilled!!
I'm serving this with a green salad with my Orange Muscat Champagne Vinaigrette (you can find on my Tab section) it's a favorite. and a side of rice.
