Heartburn Recipe: Grilled Chicken Breasts with Honey Orange Sauce

This chicken sounds light and fruity, and it is. The sauce is almost invisible. It is pale in color and its subtle flavors are simply delicious. Although the word orange will make people apprehensive, the amount is small and, when cooked, is usually much less of a problem for people with GERD. Even without the orange, this chicken is extremely flavorful.
