A quick-to-prepare marinated chicken and sauce that balances chile heat and fruity sweetness.



Combine all ingredients, except for chicken breasts, in a blender. Puree until well combined. Reserve half of puree mixture for sauce. In a food storage bag, combine chicken breasts with half of puree and shake well to coat. Marinate in refrigerator for 3 to 4 hours. Remove chicken from marinade and heat grill to medium-high heat. Cook chicken 4 to 5 min. per side, or until it reaches a 165-degree internal temperature. Warm sauce in pan to desired temperature. Spoon sauce over chicken breast and serve.

This sauce is delicious on its own and there is a lot of it! If fact, I simmer the sauce the chicken marinated in to use as the extra for serving and saved the other half for a later date. I used peaches canned in juice instead of syrup and marinated the chicken for 6.5 hours; I wish I had marinated it longer. The flavor was good but lite even when served with the extra sauce. I did bake the chicken, though, and know it would have tasted much better if grilled. I served this with the Apple-ginger Wild Rice and roasted butternut squash. I will indeed make this again and will probable try with pork tenderloin the next time.

I have made this twice since, I saw this recipe posted on Facebook. The sweetness of the peaches combined with the Chili was great. I did use fresh grated ginger root instead of the ground. I am still looking for a good side dish to go with the chicken. Any suggestions would be great.
