Raspberry Chipotle Glazed Chicken Breasts

Tired of dried out chicken breasts? Then you are going to love these. They are brined for about 30 minutes, grilled and glazed with a flavorful raspberry-chiptole glaze.


  1. Lightly flatten the chicken breasts to 1/2 inch thickness to promote even cooking.
  2. Mix together the salt, sugar and water until thoroughly combined; add the chicken and allow the chicken to brine for 30 minutes.
  3. Slightly warm the raspberry preserves until liquid, add remaining ingredients, mixing well; divide in half.
  4. Remove the chicken from brine, brush with half the glaze, place on hot grill and cook for approximately 4 minutes turning only once; leaving the grill uncovered.
  5. When plating, drizzle the remaining glaze over the chicken and enjoy!

Awesome recipe and so very easy! Thanks Paula for yet another GREAT recipe!! Updated as I have altered this for our tastes. I use split bone in chicken breasts (and brining is a MUST). I add 1/4 cup frozen raspberries and 1 pepper (jar or canned whatever I can find and freeze remaining for next time). AMAZING! I like to serve with Spanish Rice and a tossed salad.

Brining chicken breasts is brilliant. I don't know why I thought I had to have a whole turkey/chicken. The sauce for this is easy and tasty. My whole family raved about the tenderness. I'm going to try this glaze with duck.

What a great glaze. Just the right amount of spicy flavor. We loved it and will be making it again. Thanks!
