DIRECTIONS

  • Combine the first 6 ingredients.
  • Cut the peppers into 1-2" pieces.
  • Add the chicken breasts& peppers to the honey mixture.
  • I put all the ingredients in a heavy-duty zip lock bag.
  • Seal the bag and shake it until the chicken& peppers are coated with the honey mixture.
  • Put it in the refrigerator and let it marinate for 3 hours.
  • Turn the bag several times to make sure the chicken and the vegetables are well coated with the marinade.
  • Take the chicken and peppers out of the marinade.
  • Put the marinade in a saucepan and bring it to a boil.
  • Reduce the heat and simmer until the sauce reduces a small amount.
  • This usually takes about 5 minutes.
  • Spray the grill rack with cooking spray.
  • Heat the grill to medium heat.
  • Put the chicken on the rack and close the grill lid.
  • Cook for 8-10 minutes.
  • Turn the chicken and continue cooking for 8-10 minutes.
  • Baste with the marinade during the last few minutes of cooking.
  • The peppers can be grilled in a grilling basket or on skewers.
  • The peppers will need to grill for about 5 minutes on each side.
  • The chicken and peppers can be cooked in your oven broiler.
  • Place them in a single layer on the broiler pan which has been sprayed with cooking spray.
  • Broil 5-6 inches from the heat for 10 minutes.
  • Turn the chicken and peppers and baste with the marinade.
  • Cook for an additional 8-10 minutes or until chicken is done.
