orange honey grilled chicken strips

recipe from here.

know this; i try a lot of recipes but i only post the ones that i think are worthy (you're welcome).  on this particular day i ran across this wonderful blog of an old friend from high school.  it looks like she and her sisters spend a lot of time in the kitchen and i plan on trying several of their recipes.  so far, this chicken was a keeper.   the quinoa however was not a keeper but it was from a different source.  it wasn't good at all ... we were grateful to have some leftover wheat rolls from the night before to fill it's place.  i have yet to master the quinoa dishes ... sight.

orange honey grilled chicken
1 to 1 1/2 lbs boneless skinless chicken breasts (i used frozen tenders)
2 Tbsp soft butter (weird ingredient but, it was a nice touch.  i only used 1 tbsp and added 1 tbsp of olive oil)
2 Tbsp finely chopped scallions
2 Tbsp orange juice (i used fresh)
2 Tbsp chopped cilantro
1 Tbsp honey (i used 1.5)
2 Tbsp grated orange zest

the source used skewers and actually basted the chicken while it grilled. i  had skewers but i didn't want to hassle with it and i wanted to try marinating the meat for a few hours which i thought turned out quite nice.  i liked the flavors a lot and so did the kids.   add it to the list!
