Recipe Servings


1 1/2 cups cup Florida’s Natural® Orange Juice  

1/4 cup pancake syrup

3 tablespoons snipped fresh basil or 1 teaspoon dried basil, crushed

3/4 teaspoon garlic salt

8 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves (about 1 1/2 pounds total)

4 medium zucchini and/or yellow summer squash, cut lengthwise into quarters, or baby crookneck squash, halved lengthwise

2 medium red and/or green bell peppers, seeded and quartered

1 large pineapple, peeled, cored and cut into 8 slices

2 Valencia oranges, cut into 1/2-inch thick slices



In a small pan, bring 1 1/2 cups of orange juice to a boil; reduce heat and simmer until half the liquid—3/4 cup—remains. Let cool slightly.

In a bowl, stir together orange juice reduction, syrup, basil and garlic salt.


Rinse chicken; pat dry with paper towels. Brush sauce generously over chicken, squash and peppers.

Place chicken and vegetables on the rack of an uncovered grill directly over medium coals.

Grill for 6 minutes. Brush with sauce; turn and brush again. Add pineapple and orange slices; brush with sauce. Grill for 6 to 9 minutes, or until chicken is tender and no longer pink, turning pineapple and orange slices once.
