Grilled Orange Ginger Chicken: A Zesty Summer Delight

Summer is the perfect time to fire up the grill and enjoy the outdoors with family and friends. And what better way to celebrate the sunny season than with a dish that's bursting with flavour? Our Grilled Orange Ginger Chicken, featuring Emelia's Orange Ginger Glaze, is a simple yet sensational recipe that's sure to be a hit at any BBQ or dinner table.


  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1/2 cup Emelia's Orange Ginger Glaze
  • Fresh orange slices and chopped parsley for garnish (optional)


  1. Preheat the Grill: Get your grill ready by preheating it to medium-high heat. A hot grill ensures your chicken gets those beautiful grill marks and a smoky flavour.

  2. Season the Chicken: While the grill is heating, prepare your chicken. Season each breast with salt and pepper to taste. This simple seasoning allows the natural flavors of the chicken and the glaze to shine through.

  3. Grill the Chicken: Place the chicken on the grill and let it cook for about 6-7 minutes on each side. The goal is to get a nice char on the outside while keeping the inside juicy and tender. Remember, the key to perfect grilled chicken is not to overcook it. Use a meat thermometer to check for doneness - 165°F (75°C) means it's ready!

  4. Glaze the Chicken: In the last few minutes of grilling, it's time to add the star ingredient - Emelia's Orange Ginger Glaze. Brush the glaze generously over the chicken breasts, then flip them and glaze the other side. The heat from the grill will caramelize the glaze slightly, locking in those delicious, zesty flavors.

  5. Rest and Serve: Once your chicken is beautifully grilled and glazed, take it off the grill and let it rest for a few minutes. This allows the juices to redistribute, ensuring each bite is as flavorful as the last. Serve the chicken hot, garnished with fresh orange slices and a sprinkle of chopped parsley for an extra touch of freshness and color.

This Grilled Orange Ginger Chicken is more than just a meal; it's a celebration of summer flavors. The tangy sweetness of the orange and the subtle warmth of the ginger come together to create a dish that's truly unforgettable. So, the next time you're looking to impress at a summer gathering, remember that this recipe is your ticket to success. Happy grilling!
