Grilled Orange Chicken

I made this for the first time today and we loved it. Simple, but so full of flavor. I followed the recipe from AllRecipes except that I marinated boneless, skinless chicken breasts in buttermilk before grilling and brushing with glaze. I used green onion instead of chives.

Poor Alex just had his wisdom teeth removed on Friday and he couldn't eat it, so I'll be happy to make it again soon when he can enjoy it too.

Grilled Orange Chicken  

1/2 c. orange marmalade
1/4 c. balsamic vinegar
2 T. olive oil
1 t. rubbed sage
2 T. chopped fresh chives
1 (3-lb.) chicken, cut into pieces
1/2 t. garlic salt
1/4 t. coarsely ground black pepper

Preheat grill on medium heat.
Combine marmalade, balsamic vinegar, olive oil, and sage in a small saucepan. Cook over low heat for 2 minutes until smooth. Stir in the chives, then remove 1/3 of the sauce to serve with chicken later.
Season chicken pieces with garlic salt and pepper. Grill for about 15 minutes on each side, then brush with glaze. Continue cooking until done, 20 to 30 minutes, turning occasionally and brushing with additional glaze. Serve with reserved marmalade glaze.
