Simple Citrus Grilled Chicken

by in Dinner, Recipes February 27, 2019

1/2 cup fresh lemon juice
1/2 cup organic orange juice
1 tbsp minced garlic
2 tbsp avocado or olive oil
1 tsp salt
1 tsp ground ginger
1 tsp dried tarragon
1/4 tsp ground black pepper
6 organic chicken breasts (if they are thick, butterfly with a sharp knife for a more even grill)

Combine the first 8 ingredients in a large resealable bag. Add the chicken, seal the bag and toss to coat.
Refrigerate and marinate for at least 4 hours.
Grill chicken on medium heat for about 5-7 minutes each side (depending on thickness) or until meat is at 170 internally.

Tip: Use an avocado or coconut oil for higher temperature cooking. Olive oils break down during the cooking process, significantly altering the chemical profile and reducing the heart healthy benefits.
