Orange-Maple Glazed Chicken

1/3 cup orange juice
1/3 cup maple syrup
2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
1-1/2 tsp Dijon mustard
1 tsp salt, divided
3/4 tsp pepper, divided
1 tbsp minced fresh basil or 1 tsp dried basil
1/2 tsp grated orange peel
6 boneless skinless chicken breasts

In a small saucepan, combine the orange juice, syrup, vinegar, mustard, 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Bring to a boil; cook until liquid is reduced to 1/2 cup, about 5 minutes. Stir in basil and orange peel. Remove from the heat; set aside.

Sprinkle chicken with remaining salt and pepper. Grill chicken, covered, over medium heat for 5-7 minutes on each side or until chicken juices run clear, basting frequently with orange juice mixture.
