Citrus Grilled Chicken with Cheddar and Chili Cream

Citrus Grilled Chicken with Cheddar and Chili Cream

It so often seems that chicken on the grill is dry and burnt. So I set out to create a recipe that defies that. This is an easy and versatile recipe that is perfect for your summer grilling. I serve it with my Grilled Corn on the Cob,  one pot Tex-Mex qunioa, wrapped up in tacos or on top of a crisp salad.
Serves 4.

 

Ingredients

  • Marinade

  • 1/2 cup fresh orange juice, about 1-2 oranges
  • 1/4 cup fresh lime juice, about 3-4 limes
  • 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice, about 1-2 large lemons
  • 1 Tablespoon honey
  • 1 large garlic clove, peeled and smashed
  • 1/4 teaspoon chili powder, add more if you want more spice
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • Toppings

  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1/4 teaspoon each granulated garlic and chili powder
  • 1 cup cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 4, 1/2 inch slices avocado
  • *(optional) 1 each, lemon, lime, orange, sliced in half.

 

Directions

Marinade

  1. In a large ziploc bag mix together juices, honey, garlic, chili powder, pepper, salt and olive oil until well combined. Add the chicken and seal the bag.
  2. Place in the fridge for 4-8 hours.

    Sauce

  3. Mix together all ingredients into a small bowl, keep in the fridge until you put chicken on the grill.
  4. Pre-heat your grill to 350 degrees.
  5. Remove the chicken from the marinade, place your chicken to the grill, discard the marinade and cook for 7 minutes.
  6. Flip over and cook for another 7-10 minutes depending on the size of your chicken, in the last 2 minutes of cooking top each breast evenly with cheese.
  7. Remove from the grill, top with sour cream sauce and avocado and lightly cover with foil. Let rest about 5 minutes.*(optional) I like to serve it with grilled citrus to squeeze on top. Place cut side of citrus on the grill during the last 5 minutes of cooking.

 

Tips:
-Roll citrus with the palm of your hand to make it easier to juice
-To make sure your chicken doesn’t stick to the grill start with a clean grill, before lighting spray with non stick spray, dont move the chicken until the recipe tells you to do so.
