If you can’t wait to start indulging in your favorite summertime flavors, this Citrus Chicken Breast Marinade was made for your backyard barbeque!
My family and I love spending time together outside, so during the summer, when the weather is just perfect, we take advantage of our backyard and grill as much as we can. The flavors of summertime are some of my personal favorites, with so many classic summer dishes, like my boys’ favorite ambrosia salad, you never run out of fresh meal ideas. At the heart of every great summertime meal, however, is something hot and fresh, straight off the barbeque. This flavorful Citrus Chicken Breast Marinade is a crowd pleaser with any meal but really reaches its full potential on the grill.

I love to serve up this chicken marinade recipe with tortellini pasta salad, fresh grilled veggies, and some fresh squeezed lemonade to wash it all down with. It’s my go-to recipe when we’re lighting up the grill, and is perfect for serving a crowd. The only thing better than sitting down to a summer dinner is the time I get to spend with my family, grilling and enjoying the meal we all made together. Unfortunately, in the past, I have had to withhold from enjoying parts of our meal because I suffer from chronic heartburn and some of my favorites are also some of my worst heartburn triggers.
How to Marinate Chicken Breast
- Add citrus juice and zest to a mixing bowl along with oil, garlic, and seasonings. Whisk together.
- Add 1 pound of chicken to a gallon-sized zip-top plastic bag and pour in the marinade. Seal bag, work the marinade around all the chicken and refrigerate for at least 2 hours.
- Preheat grill. Remove the chicken from the marinade and cook for 5 to 7 minutes per side, flipping once. (3 to 4 minutes per side for thin cut breasts.)
- Transfer to a serving platter and garnish with orange and lime slices and parsley.
I find that 3 hours is my sweet spot for soaking when using this grilled chicken breast marinade. You can leave it for up to 6 hours, but I wouldn’t go for more than that. The citric acid will start to “cook” the chicken after an extended amount of time. While chicken can marinate in the fridge for up to 2 days, this is a short marinating time recipe.
Omeprazole Orally Disintegrating Tablet commissioned the “Prevent the Summer Burn” survey of 1,029 American heartburn sufferers and found that summer is the most common season for heartburn, with 42% categorizing it as the season they experience heartburn the most and, even worse, 34% say that heartburn makes them unable to enjoy fun summer outings. I hate to admit that this was totally me!
Last summer, I decided to take matters into my own hands and picked up Member’s Mark Omeprazole Orally Disintegrating Tablets on my shopping trip to Sam’s Club. Omeprazole ODT is designed to treat the symptoms of frequent heartburn for those who suffer 2 or more days a week. By taking 1 dose every 24 hours for 14 days you can experience 24-hour relief from your pesky heartburn symptoms. I know for me, this is a huge deal!
I cannot count on both hands the number of times I have had to watch in envy as my kids gulped down an entire pitcher of lemonade, or as my husband has indulged in deliciously acidic fresh summer fruits. I have even been forced to avoid this Citrus Chicken Breast Marinade, as amazing as it tastes because the acidity and citrus can really do a number on me. Not being able to eat the same delicious things was annoying, but mostly I got fed up of not enjoying time with my family because I was so uncomfortable the entire time sitting down at the table.
Taking Member’s Mark Omeprazole Orally Disintegrating Tablets is not only an affordable option, but they are also easy and convenient. I can grab one on the go and there is no need to pause my day to go to the kitchen and pour a glass of water to wash it down with. Omeprazole ODT with MELTechTM dissolves quickly on my tongue, and the kid in me secretly loves that they are strawberry flavored. I also love that you can start to feel relief within the first 24 hours, reaching maximum effect in the first 1- 4 days. I started taking mine on a Monday, and by the weekend I was piling on second helpings of all my favorite summertime foods.
If you suffer from painful heartburn as often as I do, you know what a relief it is to be able to sit down for a meal and not have to give a second thought to what you put on your plate or waste a moment worrying about whether or not you are going to be plagued by heartburn in the near future. This summer, set yourself up for fun and plan ahead to take control of your heartburn with Omeprazole ODT. Do not let another beautiful summer day pass you by. Focus on yourself so you can focus on the things that matter most, enjoying great food with great people.
