cloves garlic, crushed
fennel seed, cracked
ground black pepper
dried Italian herb mix
1 1/2 tbsp
orange, zest and juice
Combine all ingredients in a large mixing bowl, and toss to combine completely (massaging in with your hands is the best method). Transfer to a zip lock plastic bag, and refrigerate at least 4 hours, or overnight.
Set up your grill for direct cooking over medium-high heat. Brush grates lightly with oil when ready to start cooking. Remove chicken from marinade, place on preheated grill, and cook for 7 to 10 minutes per side, or until cooked through.
In cooler weather, this recipe will still work great indoors using a stove top grill pan, or your oven's broiler.
