Eastern Chicken

We are always trying to find new flavours for our chicken.  Change is good!  This time, I found a recipe in my "Company's Coming - Barbeques" cookbook that I thought we should try.  It has grapefruit juice in it, and we happened to have grapefruit juice in the fridge...perfect timing!  It also seemed like a fresh flavour to try...grapefruit juice and chicken...we'll see! 

Here is the recipe:

1 1/2 cups grapefruit juice
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1/4 cup vinegar
1 tablespoon sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon mustard
2 teaspoons onion flakes
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 teaspoon oregano
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1/8 teaspoon thyme
3 lbs chicken (I used boneless, skinless chicken breasts)

In a large bowl, combine the first 11 ingredients.  I like to marinate my meat in ziploc bags, so I then put the chicken into a large ziploc bag and then poured the marinade into the bag.  Do this in the morning (or the night before) and allow the chicken to marinade all day (or overnight).

Preheat your grill to medium.  Place your chicken on the grill, baste with the marinade and turn often.  Grill for about 30 minutes or until the chicken is cooked thoroughly.

This was a nice change for us for the chicken.  We don't often have grapefruit juice in the house, but next time we do and have some "extra" then we would likely make this again!
