5 pounds boneless skinless chicken breast, fillet
2/3 cup fresh orange juice

1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil

4 garlic cloves

Whisk everything but chicken in a bowl. Place chicken breasts in a resealable plastic bag, pour marinade over the chicken. After closing the bag, work the chicken a little to evenly distribute marinade.

Preheat grill to medium heat. Grill chicken breasts about 10-15 minutes each side or until cooked through.

Transfer to a plate and cover with aluminum foil allowing the chicken to rest for 5 minutes. Cut chicken into diagonal slices and layer tortilla with chicken and watermelon salsa, enjoy!
