Spicy Orange Grilled Chicken

Chicken, chicken, chicken. We eat a lot of chicken here because let's face it, it's cheap compared to the rising costs of everything else. This week at IGA, they have leg quarters for 59cents a pound. In a 10 pound bag, there were 15 leg quarters. Divided up, we will get 3 meals with leftovers for $5.90. You just can not beat it. I'll probably be picking up several bags and give my food saver a work out to stock our freezer.

On to the first meal out of this batch of chicken. We love orange, the color (it's my husband's favorite) and the flavors. We also love spicy so this is what I did for this meal:

Spicy Orange Grilled Chicken

6 oz orange juice concentrate
1/2 jar spicy pepper jelly
1-2 Tablespoons butter

Melt these together in a small pot until thickened.

Salt and Pepper for the chicken.

Grill the chicken and when almost done, brush the glaze on both sides. Use remaining glaze for a dipping sauce. Make sure you have lots of napkins handy because the glaze gets sticky on the grill. Serve with lots of grilled vegetables.

Check out the sauce, it's a pretty orange. I think that makes it even better.
