Citrus-Marinated Chicken Recipe

Recently, I have been getting a lot of oranges from the ASUCD The Pantry. They have plenty of free oranges. I love eating oranges, but I was thinking if there are any other ways to consume oranges. Orange juice, eating oranges raw, and …? I was looking for recipes that uses oranges and I came across this simple recipe. This recipe shares another way to enjoy your chicken! Enjoy with a side of rice and vegetables! 


  • ½ cup lemon juice
  • ½ cup orange juice
  • 6 garlic cloves (minced)
  • 2 tbsp canola oil
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp ground ginger 
  • 1 tsp dried tarragon (or dried oregano or dill)
  • ¼ tsp of pepper 
  • 6 boneless skinless chicken breast halves (6 oz each) 


  1. Using a large resealable plastic bag, combine the ½ cup lemon juice, ½ cup orange juice, 6 garlic cloves (minced), 2 tbsp canola oil, 1 tsp salt, 1 tsp ground ginger, 1 tsp dried tarragon (or dried oregano or dill), and ¼ tsp of pepper. Add the chicken then seal the bag. Turn the bag around to coat the chicken. Place the bag in the fridge for at least 4 hours.
  2. Take the bag out of the fridge and drain the marinade. Take out the chicken and grill the chicken, covered, over medium heat. If you want to use the oven, broil the chicken for 5-7 minutes on each side. The chicken should be 4 inches from the heat. Ensure that the chicken reaches an internal temperature of 170F.
