Citrus Chicken

This is good cooked either on the grill or BBQ or in the oven.

3 pounds chicken pieces, as per your family's preference
1 tsp salt

(1) Parboil the chicken to reduce fat. Put chicken into large pot and cover with water and add salt. Bring to a boil and simmer 10-12 minutes. Take off the heat, and then drain the water.

(2) Meanwhile, prepare marinade, mixing together:
1/4 c orange juice
1/4 c lemon juice
1/4 c honey
2 tbsp olive or grapeseed oil
1 tbsp dijon mustard

(3) Pour marinade over parboiled chicken (use a plastic or glass container or bowl - do not use metal). Put chicken in marinade in fridge for 3-4 hours.

For oven cooking:
Bake in an open glass casserole, single layer, at 350-degrees for 40 minutes.

For grilling or BBQ:
Cook 20-30 minutes, turning pieces often, and brushing generously with marinade. Discard leftover marinade.

My kids are picky eaters, and they did like this dish. But the honey curry chicken recipe on this site is still our favourite.
