  • Chicken
  • 1 cup fresh organic tangerine juice or orange juice
  • 1/3 cup chopped fresh parsley
  • 1/3 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 3 tablespoons chopped fresh thyme
  • 3 tablespoons minced peeled fresh ginger
  • 3 tablespoons unseasoned rice vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons finely grated organic tangerine peel or orange peel
  • 1 teaspoon coarse kosher salt
  • 1 each 2-3/4 to 3-pound chicken, quartered, backbone removed

Preparation for glaze:

  1. Boil fresh organic tangerine juice, honey, and soy sauce in heavy medium saucepan until reduced to 2/3 cup, about 20 minutes.
  2. Mix in grated peel and chipotle chiles.

For chicken:

  1. Whisk first 9 ingredients in 13″x 9″ x 2″ glass baking dish to blend. Add chicken; turn to coat with marinade. Cover; chill at least 2 hours and up to 1 day, turning occasionally.
  2. Spray grill rack with nonstick spray and prepare barbecue (medium-low heat). Remove chicken from marinade; discard marinade. Sprinkle chicken lightly with salt. Grill chicken until cooked through, turning and repositioning occasionally for even cooking, about 20 minutes.
  3. Brush chicken all over with glaze; grill 2 minutes longer on each side.
  4. Transfer chicken to platter. Serve, passing remaining glaze separately.

*Chipotle chiles are dried, smoked jalapeños canned in a spicy tomato sauce, which is sometimes called adobo. They are available at some supermarkets, specialty foods stores, and Latin markets.
