    Debber's Note:

    From Rachael Ray's Sept. '08 "Everyday" magazine, so you know it's savory and simple--all at once. Her recipe called for apricot preserves, but I'm using up MIL's Peach Jam, and we loved it just fine. Also, I used only 2 chicken breast halves (paillard-cut) for four of us and we had leftovers (our chickens are very large!), so adjust the recipe up or down accordingly.

    Units: US | Metric

    • 1/2 cup apple juice or 1/2 cup cider
    • 1/4 cup apricot preserves or 1/4 cup peach preserves
    • 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
    • olive oil, for drizzling
    • 4 chicken breast halves
    • salt & pepper


    1. 1
      Preheat grill to medium-high, brush off the grates to remove crusty, gritty stuff.
    2. 2
      While that's heating up, bring preserves and vinegar to a boil in a medium saucepan; lower the heat and simmer until thick and syrupy (7-8 minutes or longer).
    3. 3
      While THAT's cooking, drizzle oil over the chicken (on a plate or in a bowl); season with S & P; grill until cooked through (about 6 minutes per side).
    4. 4
      Remove chicken from grill to a serving platter, drizzle jam-vinegar mixture over the meat and serve!
    5. 5
      We had this with potato wedges baked in foil on the grill.
    6. 6
    7. 7
      Use any leftovers to make sandwiches for lunch the next day, or cut into bite-size pieces and add to a "grilled chicken" salad. Delicimosio!

      Very nice. I actually didn't use the apple cider, and it still came out lovely.

      This really packs a flavor punch! No where in the directions does it mention the apple juice, so I added it with the vinegar and preserves. My husband commanded me to make this again and I surely will. I used garlic salt for the salt and for the pepper, it was both blavk and cayenne peppers. EXCELLENT!
