Orange Longan Marinade Grilled Chicken

I guess having to cook healthier also means having to experiment on different types of combinations that I wouldn’t usually try but desperate times call for desperate measures.

Fruits and chicken have always been a pretty safe combination and I guess the only thing that could go wrong is getting the proportions wrong.

The usual orange chicken or lemon honey chicken were getting boring after a bit.

Decided to try an orange longan marinade this time around.

4 skinless chicken breast pieces abt 100grams each
The juice of 2 oranges
Fresh 10 longans (deseeded and purified)
1/2 teaspoon of olive oil

1. Juice the orange and use the juice as a medium to combine the longans and orange juice
2. Drop the chicken into the mixture and leave in to marinade for at least 12 hours.
3. Now the chicken is ready to be grilled/fried/baked
4. Don’t waste the marinade, warm it in a pot with some ginger and there you have a sauce for the chicken.
