Grilled Orange Chili Chicken With Salsa

Heading out to the grill with this fantastic Orange Chili Chicken, this recipe is delicious! Not only is there a great flavor in the chicken but there is a very special salsa that we top the chicken with. This recipe is a combination of tropical and Mexican that comes together for fabulous flavor. I have served this recipe to guest a couple of times, I promised them the recipe, hope you enjoy!
