  • Ready In

  1. Whisk olive oil, herbes de Provence, garlic, salt, and black pepper in a bowl; place chicken in marinade and stir to coat. Cover and refrigerate 1 to 6 hours, turning chicken occasionally in marinade.
  2. Whisk chicken broth, orange juice, sugar, orange zest, butter, tamarind paste, and ginger in a saucepan and place over medium-high heat. Cook at a vigorous boil, whisking often, until mixture has reduced to about 3/4 cup and glaze coats the back of a spoon, 25 to 30 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in chile-garlic sauce; season tamarind glaze with salt and black pepper.
  3. Preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat. Spray a grill pan with cooking spray. Pour about 3 tablespoons tamarind glaze into a small bowl for basting and set aside.
  4. Place chicken breasts onto preheated grill; discard used marinade. Grill chicken until browned, the meat is no longer pink inside, and the juices run clear, about 4 minutes per side, basting with reserved tamarind glaze. An instant-read meat thermometer inserted into the thickest part of a breast should read at least 160 degrees F (70 degrees C). Transfer chicken to a serving plate and serve with remaining tamarind glaze poured on top.

Easy and scrumptious.

OMG! We made this for our guests over the weekend and they referred to it as "divine". I have to agree. We make a lot of chicken recipes and this has to be our absolute favorite. If you live in ...

Wow, this is an incredibly easy & taste dish.

Very yummy. A little time consuming for the sauce, but worth the wait.

Definitely one I will make again. I try to follow a recipe exactly the first time, but I couldn't find tamarind paste. I substituted tamarind chutney. I did not have a fresh orange, so used good...

This recipe is so tasty! Both my husband and I loved it. I served the chicken (which I marinated for 2 hours) over basmati rice and poured a little of the reserved marinade over the whole thing....
