soy & citrus marinated chicken

This recipe is so insanely simple that I’m just going to break it down right here for you.


Combine 2 tablespoons of soy sauce and the juice of half an orange. Pour over four chicken breasts and allow to marinate for 2-4 hours.

Cook chicken however you please. Serve over rice, pasta, couscous, quinoa – whatever. Add veggies and dinner is done!

Yep. That’s it.

If you have the means, you can also add freshly grated ginger, minced garlic, a little sesame oil, chili oil, and honey or brown sugar to the marinade as well.

When you’re ready to cook the chicken, just pour the excess marinade into a small sauce pot and allow it to simmer and reduce while the chicken cooks.

Once the chicken is plated, pour the thickened sauce back over the chicken and serve.

I like to serve this chicken with roasted sweet potatoes, green beans, and a side salad (as pictured) but it’s also good over sesame noodles with sliced green onions, or as part of a quick stir-fry.

Don’t toss that other half of orange out either. Cut the segments into bite-sized pieces and toss with the rice.
