Broiled Orange-Chili Chicken Breasts
Courtesy of Atkins Kitchen
Marinating imbues bland chicken breasts with flavor and makes them very moist. This simple marinade can be put together in 10 minutes. At dinner-time, simply broil the chicken. Serve with a side of broccoli and a dollop of sour cream mixed with a dash of chili powder.
4 boneless chicken breast halves, with skin
Freshly ground pepper
1/4 cup fresh orange juice
1 tablespoon canola oil
1 tablespoon chili powder
1 teaspoon grated orange rind
1 garlic clove, pushed through a press
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper (optional)
1. Sprinkle chicken breasts with salt and pepper. In a large resealable plastic bag, mix orange juice, oil, chili powder, orange rind, garlic and cayenne pepper. Add chicken breasts; toss to coat. Refrigerate 6 to 8 hours.
2. Heat broiler. Position broiler rack 6" from heat source. Broil chicken 12 to 15 minutes, turning halfway through cooking time, just until cooked through.
