Simple Grilled Chicken
”You can fool some of the people all of the time, and all of the people some of the time, but you can not fool all of the people all of the time.”
You can’t fool a good cook with a bad recipe and good cook knows most of the time that simple is better. In all my years of cooking, the most important lesson learned has been the less ingredients and steps a recipe requires, it is usually a better recipe.
It’s the same principle when spotting liar. The more information and the more complicated their story, you can usually bet they’re not telling the truth. So the problem with lying is that all the little details usually add up and get you caught. The same goes for a bad recipe – all those little details and steps add up and the result is a bad dish!
4 chicken breast halves, boneless and skinless
1 cup apple cider vinegar
1/4 cup canola oil
2 tbsp brown sugar
1 tbsp honey
1 tbsp orange juice
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp pepper
1 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
Wash and dry chicken breast, place in a large ziploc bag. Whisk together remaining ingredients until well blended. Pour over chicken and seal bag. Place in fridge and let marinate for 1-3 hours.
Preheat grill to a medium-high heat. Grill chicken 8-10 minutes per side, depending on thickness. Juices will run clear when chicken is done.
If you like a little bit spicier marinade, just add more crushed red pepper flakes.
Make a meal on the grill. I like to grill fresh corn and vegetable kabobs when I make this chicken dish.
