recipe: grilled chicken with tamari and orange sauce

grilled chicken with tamari and orange sauceafter making the grilled mahi mahi with tamari and orange sauce, i had a lot of sauce leftover and i didn’t want to waste it so i saved it for another dish. i picked up some chicken breast and asparagus and dipped them in the leftover tamari and orange sauce. score! with the sauce on the grill, i was able to dilute it and lightly fry some leftover rice with the flavor.
