Grilled Chicken with Grapefruit Glaze…A Healthy Recipe

images-8.jpeg

INGREDIENTS

2 cloves garlic, minced
1 teaspoon grapefruit zest (from about 1/2 grapefruit)
1/2 cup grapefruit juice (from 1 grapefruit)
1 tablespoon cooking oil
2 tablespoons honey
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon fresh-ground black pepper
4 bone-in chicken breasts (about 2 1/4 pounds in all)

DIRECTIONS

Light the grill. In a small bowl, combine the garlic, grapefruit zest, grapefruit juice, oil, honey, salt, and pepper.

Grill the chicken breasts over moderately high heat, brushing frequently with the glaze, for 8 minutes. Turn and cook, brushing with more glaze, until the chicken is just done, 10 to 12 minutes longer. Remove.

In a small stainless-steel saucepan, bring the remaining glaze to a boil. Boil for about 1 minute, remove from the heat, and pour over the grilled chicken.

Enjoy!                                                           Colossians 4:2
