PALEO - GRILLED CHICKEN WITH HABANERO & ORANGE GLAZE
Just reading the name of this recipe makes me want to try the Paleo lifestyle, which can be enjoyed using a Napoleon or Mont Alpi grill or a Big Green Egg!
2 chicken legs
2 chicken thighs
4 cups orange juice
2 habanero peppers, halved, stem and seeds removed
1 tablespoon honey
1/2 cup cilantro, chopped, plus extra for garnish
In a large saucepan, combine the orange juice, habaneros, a dash of salt and pepper and the honey. Place the cilantro in a tea/herb infuser (or a cheesecloth sack) and seal. Place this directly into the pot. Bring the mixture to a boil over medium high heat, then lower the heat to medium low. Simmer for 30-40 minutes, or until the juice has reduced by half and thickened. Remove from heat and discard of the habanero peppers and the tea infuser. Set aside to cool.
Meanwhile, preheat your grill to medium. Brush the grates with just a little olive oil. In a large bowl, combine the chicken legs and thighs with some salt and pepper. Toss to combine. Ladle in about a cup of the glaze and toss to coat. Transfer what''s left of the glaze to a small bowl. Grill the chicken for 10-12 minutes or until cooked through. Rotate the pieces every 2-3 minutes, and brush with the glaze after each rotation.
Remove from grill and let rest for 2-3 minutes. Sprinkle with chopped cilantro and enjoy!
