Citrus Grilled Chicken
CITRUS GRILLED CHICKEN
I got this recipe from my favorite clean eating site The Gracious Pantry and made it last night for dinner. It was so good! I have a habit of just making things very plain and boring, which is fine for me but NOT good when I have a guest. So to spice things up a little for my friend Rikki I made the citrus chicken and was pleasantly surprised!The citrus was not over powering, but added some flavor! Perfect for not boring the hell out of my guest! I steamed some broccoli and baked my favorite sweet potato for sides! Quick and Easy! Enjoy!
