1/2 cup orange juice – pref. fresh
1 tbsp. lime juice -- fresh
1 dried chile -- arbol is nice*
1/2 cup tomato salsa
1/8 cup vegetable oil
1/2 tsp. kosher salt

3 skinless boneless chicken breast

To make marinade: In a small saucepan, combine orange juice, lime juice and chile. Bring to a boil over medium heat. Reduce heat to low and simmer 5 minutes, until chile is soft and plumped up. Remove from heat and let cool.

Add salsa, oil and slat and puree with hand blender until smooth. If you don't have a hand blender, pour whole mixture into a blender or food processor and process until smooth.

For chicken:
Trim fat from chicken. Make a few slits in chicken with a knife. Place in a large re-sealable bag. Pour marinade over chicken, seal and refrigerate for at least 3 hours, preferably more.

Preheat GF Grill. When hot, spray with some cooking spray. Place chicken on grill. Close and cook for 5 minutes. Remove from machine & unplug.

For salsa:
Peel oranges and separate into segments. Cut each segment into 3 pieces. Put orange chunks and juices in a medium bowl.

Add remaining ingredients and stir to mix well. Serve at once.
