  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 cup orange juice
  • Zest of 1 orange
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon grated ginger
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • Chopped fresh parsley for garnish


  1. Start by marinating the chicken. In a bowl, mix together the orange juice, orange zest, honey, soy sauce, minced garlic, grated ginger, salt, and pepper.
  2. Add the chicken breasts to the marinade and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes, allowing the flavors to meld.
  3. Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Remove the chicken from the marinade and cook for about 6-7 minutes on each side, or until the chicken is cooked through and has a golden sear.
  4. While cooking, brush the chicken with the marinade occasionally to create a beautiful glaze.
  5. Once done, transfer the chicken to a serving platter and garnish with chopped parsley.
  6. Serve the Sweet and Tangy Orange Glazed Chicken with steamed rice and your favorite sautéed vegetables. Drizzle any remaining glaze over the chicken and enjoy!
