Chicken Orlando ™

Even if you can't get away, you can still feel like you're on vacation with this dish.

This chicken is very light for a hot summer night. This is even perfect on the grill. If you don't have a grill pan or outdoor grill, go ahead and use a skillet.

2 boneless skinless chicken breasts

2 T soy sauce
1/4 tsp pepper
1/8 tsp salt (optional)
Juice and zest of 1 grapefruit

1/2 tsp ginger root (diced)
1- 2 T oil (olive or canola)

Zest and juice grapefruit. Dice ginger root.

In mixing bowl combine, grapefruit juice, zest, salt, pepper and ginger, mix well.

Place chicken in container. Pour marinade over chicken and let it set for several hours or overnight in refrigerator.
Discard marinade.

Heat grill pan or grill on medium high heat. Reduce heat to medium, add oil.  Add chicken, and grill on one side for 9-12 minutes or until done. Flip chicken to other side and repeat cooking process.

Serves 2.

I can't wait to try this! We eat a lot of chicken so I'm always looking for ways to change things up. The grapefruit intrigues me.
