Orange Chipolte Chicken

Let’s face it, our summer days are numbered, so let’s get our there and do a little grilling while the evenings are still mild! This is a great marinade that I like to use on all kinds of chicken pieces. If you are doing a variety of pieces (legs, thighs, breasts, etc) just make sure they are about the same size so that they will all be finished cooking around the same time.

4 pieces of chicken – cut of your choice, skin removed.
Zest and juice of one orange
2 TBSP balsamic vinegar
2 TBSP Olive Oil
1 clove of minced garlic
2 TSP dried oregano
1/2 TSP chipolte chili powder (or any chili powder you happen to have)
Pinch of salt and pepper

Mix all ingredients together and pour over chicken in a glass dish. Cover and place in the fridge for 30 minutes to 4 hours. Grill on the BBQ until the chicken reaches an internal temperature of at least 170 degrees.
