Island Girl Orange Grilled Chicken Paillards/Cutlets

“Flattened chicken breasts cook very quickly--so don't leave them on the grill too long or they'll dry out (ewww!). Original recipe comes from *Living*”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a bowl, combine marmalade, juices, leaves, 1 teaspoons salt and pepper; mix well, then reserve 1/2°C glaze for serving.
  2. Preheat grill to medium high.
  3. Season chicken with salt & pepper; place on grill and brush with half of glaze.
  4. Grill three minutes, then flip & brush with remaining glaze; continue grilling until chicken is cooked through (3 minutes more).
  5. Place chicken on serving platter & keep warm.
  6. Slice one orance into rounds, the other into wedges; place oranges on grill, flipping once until softened (1-2 minutes per side).
  7. Add oranges to chicken on platter; serve with reserved glaze.
  8. IS THE MEAT DONE? With a very sharp knife, nick the meat with the knife-tip--the meat should be white and moist--NOT pink.
  9. PREPARING CUTLETS: Easiest to do when the meat is partially frozen, remove tenderloin (the loose part) & set aside for some other use. Lay cutlet on board, with hand over the top, and cut with very sharp knife going horizontally under your hand (half-way through the meat). You should have two fairly equal pieces of meat.
  10. To pound cutlets into thin paillards: place meat on plastic wrap with about a half-teaspoon of olive oil, plastic wrap on top, then pound with SIDE of kitchen mallet.
