Grilled Orange Chicken Fingers

The simple, sweet orange glaze for the chicken can be whipped up fast; marinating time is just 15 minutes and the marinade caramelizes deliciously on the grill. Serve this with carrot sticks and baked potato wedges, tossed with herbs and olive oil.

Yield: 4 servings
Active Time: 10
Total Time: 30

Ingredients

  • 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts, trimmed
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons frozen orange juice concentrate, thawed
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

Preparation

  1. Cut chicken crosswise into 3/4-inch-wide strips. Whisk mustard, orange juice concentrate, honey, sesame oil and pepper in a medium bowl until smooth. Add the chicken and toss to combine. Cover and marinate in the refrigerator for 15 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, prepare grill or preheat the broiler. Oil the grill rack (see Tip) or coat a broiler pan with cooking spray. Remove the chicken strips from the marinade, discarding remaining marinade. Grill or broil the chicken until no longer pink in the center, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Season with salt and serve.
