A Healthy Grilled Chicken Recipe


    2 tbsp. honey, raw

    2 tbsp. orange juice

    16 oz. chicken breast

    1 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil

    1 tsp. ground cumin

    1 tsp. sea salt

    1 tsp. black pepper


Preheat grill to medium. Combine honey and orange juice in a small bowl; whisk to blend. Set aside. Brush each chicken breast lightly with oil. Sprinkle both sides evenly with cumin, salt (if desired), and pepper (if desired). Place chicken on grill; cook, without turning, for 5 minutes. When chicken releases easily from the grill, turn and cook for an additional 3 minutes. Reduce grill heat to low. Brush chicken evenly with honey mixture. Be careful, honey will burn if exposed to flames. Grill until a meat thermometer inserted into the center of each breast reads 160° F.* Remove from grill. Let chicken rest 5 minutes before serving. The FDA suggests cooking chicken to a temperature of 165° F. Chicken will continue to cook after it is removed from heat, so we recommend that it be removed from the grill at 160° F to prevent drying out.
