Grilled Citrus Chicken
Oriental Pasta Salad

Cooking time: 25 minutes for menu          Cooking schedule: see below for instructions

     A quick dinner:  let the chicken marinate a bit.  When you're ready, it only takes about 15 minutes and the salad is already done!

Grilled Citrus Chicken                                      Preparation and cooking time:  25 minutes
     This has a definite citrus flavor, the tart of lemon tempered by the orange marmalade and rounded out with the tomato in the ketchup.

2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
3 tbs orange marmalade
2 tbs lemon juice
2 tbs ketchup
2 tbs oil

Mix all ingredients for marinade well with a whisk. Spoon over chicken breasts and let marinate for 10 minutes or longer.  Either cook 10 - 15 minutes on barbecue grill or under broiler (4 inches ) for 6 - 8 minutes a side.  They should be nicely browned and juices should run clear when pierced with a knife.
