Grilled Caribbean Chicken Breasts

1/4 cup fresh orange juice
1 teaspoon orange zest
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
1 teaspoon grated gingerroot
1 scallions, finely chopped ( green and white part)
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/4-1/2 teaspoon hot pepper sauce, to taste
1/2 teaspoon oregano
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
In large shallow bowl or resealable bag, mix together orange juice, orange peel, olive oil, lime juice, ginger, garlic, scallion hot pepper sauce and oregano. Add chicken, turning to coat. Cover and marinate in refrigerator about 3 hours or overnight.
Remove chicken from marinade and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
Place on prepared grill about 6 inches from heat. (Chicken may also be broiled or cooked on an indoor grill, if desired.) Grill, turning, about 10 minutes or until fork can be inserted in chicken with ease. (Reduce time to 5-6 minutes on indoor grill.).
