This grilled orange chicken is juicy and tender after being marinated in a simple yet flavorful orange marinade. It’s a family favorite that never disappoints.



  • 2 lbs. boneless, skinless, chicken thighs
  • 1 cup orange juice, pulp free
  • ½ cup low-sodium soy sauce
  • ¼ cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 medium cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 Tbsp. paprika
  • couple dashes of hot pepper sauce


  1. For the marinade: In a medium bowl, whisk orange juice, soy sauce, olive oil, garlic, paprika, and hot pepper sauce. Add chicken and toss to coat. Cover tightly with plastic wrap and marinate at least 4 hours up to overnight in the refrigerator.
  2. To cook the chicken: pre-heat the grill on medium-high heat. Add chicken and grill until cooked through, about 12-15 minutes. Discard the marinade.
  3. Let chicken rest 5-7 minutes before serving.
