Citrus Marinade

Try this quick marinade on chicken or pork before it hits the grill. Because the orange juice provides sugar and acidity, it does double duty. Amounts listed cover approximately 1/2 pound of meat.

Easy Marinade

You'll need approximately:
  • 3 pinches of red pepper flakes
  • .5 cup of orange juice
  • about 2 pinches of black pepper
  • 3 basil leaves
  • .25 cup of vegetable oil
Put the pepper and the pepper flakes in an airtight container then pour juice over them. Tear apart basil by hand then toss them into the container. Whisk ingredients before adding meat. Refrigerate up to 24 hours.
