"The citrus blends nicely with the garlic, thyme & oregano. Do not leave the chicken in the marinade for more than an hour, the citrus juices will start to cook the chicken. If you would rather You may pan fry the breasts - about 4 minutes each side."

I scaled this down for 2 and followed this recipe as instructed and the breasts came out perfectly tender and juicy after 5 minutes per side on a medium-high heat grill. As said in the recipe intro, the citrus flavor did really pair well with the garlic and dried herbs.
