Grilled chicken is a staple in our house. We grill year-round, but we grill at least 4 or 5 times a week during the summer months! This Orange Fire Chicken is an updated version of one of our all-time favorite chicken marinades. This is so easy and has TONS and TONS of amazing flavor!

The key to evenly cooked chicken is to pound the chicken to an even thickness. You want to pound the hump in the chicken. That way you won't have one cooked end and one dry end. I place the chicken in a ziplock back and whack it a few times with a meat mallet or rolling pin.

I like to let the chicken marinate overnight in the refrigerator. If you don't have all night, just let it hang out for as long as you can before grilling the chicken. This Orange Fire Chicken is one of the juiciest and most tender grilled chicken recipes we make.
