Grill or broil this flavorful honey citrus chicken and enjoy it in a variety of ways. Chipotle Tabasco sauce gives these chicken breasts a tantalizing smoky flavor that you'll love, though you can also use original Tabasco sauce if that's what you prefer.


  • 4 large chicken breasts

  • 1/2 cup freshly squeezed orange juice

  • 1/4 cup freshly squeezed lime juice

  • 1/3 cud freshly squeezed lemon juice

  • 3 tablespoons honey

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

  • 1/2 teaspoon regular or chipotle Tabasco sauce

Steps to Make It

  1. Gently pound chicken breasts between sheets of plastic wrap with hand or meat mallet just enough to make the breasts even in thickness.

  2. Combine remaining ingredients and pour into a food storage bag.

  3. Add the chicken and turn to coat well.

  4. Refrigerate, turning occasionally, for about 2 to 4 hours.

  5. Remove from the marinade and grill or broil the chicken for about 20 minutes, turning once, or until cooked through. When pierced with a fork, juices will run clear.

  6. If desired, boil the marinade and use it to baste the chicken the last 5 or 10 minutes.

Glass Bakeware Warning

Do not use glass bakeware when broiling or when a recipe calls to add liquid to a hot pan, as glass may explode. Even if it states oven-safe or heat resistant, tempered glass products can, and do, break occasionally.
