  • 2 (6 oz) boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1/2 cup 100% orange juice
  • 1 tbsp low sodium soy sauce*
  • 1 tbsp dijon mustard
  • 1 tbsp avocado or olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tbsp fresh rosemary, chopped (about 4 4-inch sprigs)
  • 1/4 tsp freshly cracked black pepper


  1. In a shallow container, whisk together all ingredients except for chicken. Place chicken in the container with the marinade and refrigerate 2-3 hours.
  2. Heat grill or grill pan to medium heat. Remove chicken, reserving marinade.
  3. Spray grill with oil and add chicken breasts. Cook 5 minutes per side over direct heat, basting with reserved marinade.
