Citrus Marinated Chicken | #chicken #dinner #bsinthekitchen

Browsing through my favourite magazine (Bon Appetit of course!) I came across this simple and delicious looking recipe for Citrus Marinated Chicken. Taking some chicken out of the fridge, I went about assembling the marinade when it took a bit of a left turn! Cutting into what I thought was an orange, but was actually a small, very orange-esque grapefruit, I had to make a little change of plans! Undeterred, I went with it, using grapefruit as my main citrus and making a few changes here and there to the recipe.

In the end, it all worked out and  I had myself some tasty chicken. It had some great teriyaki flavour with hints of citrus and a really nice caramelization from the sugars in the marinade. Served with some rice and fresh veggies, it made an easy and delicious meal!

Citrus Marinated Chicken
Recipe type: Dinner
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 2-4
Asian inspired grilled chicken with hints of citrus!
  • 5 chicken drumsticks
  • 1 clove of garlic (minced)
  • ½ cup packed cilantro
  • ¼ cup chopped green onion
  • ⅓ cup fresh grapefruit juice
  • 2 tbsp concentrated orange juice (I used sunrype)
  • ⅛ cup soya sauce
  • ½ tbsp salt
  1. Combine all of the ingredients into a Ziploc bag, mixing around chicken, and allow to marinate for at least an hour.
  2. Once chicken has finished marinating, allow to sit at room temperature for about 20-30 minutes.
  3. Preheat your barbecue to medium heat for about 10-15 minutes.
  4. Once your grill has preheated, cook your chicken for about 15-20 minutes (or until its internal temperature reaches 165F).
  5. Rotate chicken approximately every five minutes, allowing it to cook evenly on all sides and give you delicious skin!
  6. Halfway through the cooking process, brush the leftover marinade on the chicken whenever you rotate it.
  7. Once chicken has finished cooking, remove from heat and allow it to rest for 10-15 minutes.
  8. Serve with rice and a sprinkle of chopped green onion!
