Part 2: Orange Glazed Chicken with Wheat Berry Salad

Friday I posted Part 1 of my Orange Glazed Chicken with Wheat Berry Salad detailing how to cook and store Wheat Berries along with the salad recipe.  Today I’m sharing how to make the Orange Glazed Chicken Breasts.  I hope if you take the time to try these recipes you enjoy them as much as my family did.

Orange Glazed Chicken
serves 6


6 boneless skinless chicken breasts
1/4 olive oil
zest of one orange
juice of one orange
1 tsp. each of salt and pepper

4 Tbsp. orange marmalade
4 Tbsp. Sweet Chili Sauce (found in Asian section at grocer)


Combine 1st five ingredients in a zip lock baggie, squish to coat chicken well and set aside to marinate from 30 minutes – 2 hours.

Combine marmalade and chili sauce and set aside.

Preheat your grill. Once preheated turn to medium heat and place chicken breasts skin side down (skin is removed or left on if you prefer) on the grates.  Cook for 3-4 minutes per side depending on thickness.  Flip breasts over and after about 2 minutes of grill time on the bottom side, spread the sauce over the top of each chicken breast until chicken is done.

Chicken can be baked, broiled or sauteed as well.

If you have trouble telling when your chicken is done check out my tutorial on how to grill perfect chicken.


Once chicken is cooked, place a large scoop of the Wheat Berry Salad on a plate and top with Orange Glazed Chicken.  Serve with fresh steamed or grilled veggies on the side.


If you happen to have any leftovers this makes a great entree salad the next day for lunch.  Simply cut the chicken into bite sized pieces and toss into the Wheat Berry Salad.  It’s positively delicious!

  16. Hi Vicki!

    Interessting orange glazed chicken recipe, my eyes fell on the chilli sauce, which I must say will fit perfectly to the orange flavoures. It will give the dish a whole new dimension!

  18. I love this orange glazed chicken! I have one recipe that I use marmalade, and we don’t even use marmalade for toasts etc. So I usually have leftover marmalade until I make the dish. I’m going to keep this recipe and try it next time we have marmalade. Sounds VERY easy and delicious!!

  19. What a lovely recipe. I really love the way you’ve used marmalade in this dish. All those flavors are playing on my tongue as I write this and you’ve made me hungry – again :-). I hope you have a great day. Blessings…Mary
