This recipe was originally for Salmon, which is what I used when I tried it for the first time. It was delicious! But we hate fish. So... chicken it is!
1/4 cup juice concentrate - any flavor will do. I used cranberry-raspberry.
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
2 tablespoons fruit preserves - I used plum! Yummy!
4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1 teaspoon lemon pepper
Grapefruit slices (you could also use lemon or orange)
Preheat broiler. Line a baking sheet with foil and place in broiler.
In a small saucepan, over medium-high heat, combine juice concentrate, preserves, and balsamic vinegar. Simmer until preserves melt, about 2 to 3 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside.
Meanwhile, season each chicken breast with 1 teaspoon lemon pepper. Remove the baking sheet from broiler and spray with nonstick cooking spray. Place chicken on baking sheet. Broil for 6 minutes. Spoon glaze over each piece, top each with a grapefruit slice and broil for another 2 minutes, or until chicken is fully cooked.
I would recommend doubling the sauce, and serving it over rice on the side. It's like candy!! Sooo good!
