This marinade is working overtime in the flavor department, with spicy habanero chile balancing perfectly with sweet orange. This versatile mixture makes an amazing marinade and sauce, so we suggest using half to marinate your chicken (or your favorite protein) and veggies, and reserving half to drizzle over top of your grilled masterpiece.
