Citrus Teriyaki Chicken (Freezer Friendly)

Citrus Teriyaki Chicken with Oven Fried Potato Wedges
Just when you think you've run out of recipes for chicken breast, you find another! During my last  Chicken Freezer Meal Afternoon, I went hunting for more chicken recipes that adapted well to the freezer and found this one!

This had a nice orange flavor, not too overwhelming. This recipe added some variety to my freezer marniated chicken, and was easy to put together on the cooking day.

The leftover chicken breasts made some orangey chicken salad a few days later!

Citrus Teriyaki Chicken
recipe adapted from $5 Dinners

4 - 4oz boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1/2 cup low sodium soy sauce
Zest of 1 orange
1/2 cup sugar or honey
1/2 cup wine vinegar
1/2 teaspoon ginger powder
1 teaspoon minced garlic
dash red pepper flakes

In a medium bowl, whisk all ingredients (except chicken) together. Add chicken to marinade and cover. Can freeze at this point. Refrigerate for several hours to allow chicken to marinate.
Separate chicken from marinade. Grill or saute chicken over med-high heat for about 10 min on each side until no longer pink.
