Barbecued Chicken with Orange Garlic Sauce


What’s cooking

There’s no match for chicken barbecued on a grill. Of course, the secret’s in the sauce, featuring Florida’s Natural® Orange Juice, garlic and a touch of honey.

Barbecued Chicken Ingredients

  • Chicken breasts, thighs and/or legs (about 2 pounds)
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Paprika

Orange Garlic Sauce Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup Florida’s Natural® Orange Juice
  • 3 tablespoons garlic paste
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1 teaspoon lime juice
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon hot sauce (optional)


  • Combine all of the sauce ingredients, mix and set aside.
  • Sprinkle chicken with salt, pepper, and paprika, and place on the grill over medium heat.
  • After about 5 minutes, turn the chicken and brush on sauce.
  • Continue to turn, basting chicken with sauce as it cooks.
  • After the chicken is done (i.e. reached 180° F internally), remove from heat and brush one more time with orange sauce before serving.
