Glazed Chicken


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!
