The chicken was good and went well with the sauce. I substituted apple butter for apple jelly, and the sauce turned out very tart. I think next time I'll try it with the jelly. The sugar in the jelly might neutralize the tartness of the grapefruit.

This is an unusual, but very nice, way to prepare chicken. My dh was initially skeptical about the combination, but all of us enjoyed the meal. I used chicken tenderloins & must admit to not measuring the salt & thyme, just sprinkling it over the chicken in the frying pan. I found that one grapefruit was all that we needed, though I came up a bit short on juice.
