I have been getting the best grilling recipes from my Williams-Sonoma Essentials of Grilling cookbook. Here is the latest and tastiest…I think I even like it better than the citrus marinade I posted earlier! They are so different, though, it’s hard to compare. This recipe is full of flavor and spice (I love curry) and the apples set it off perfectly. Definitely a different, fun way to grill those chicken breasts!
Curried Apple and Chutney Chicken Breasts
submitted by Brittany
4 bone-in chicken breast halves (boneless skinless worked great for me)
1 tart apple, cored and cut crosswise into 8 thick slices
1/2 c mango or other chutney
for the curry paste:
1/4 c honey mustard
2 Tb canola oil
2 tsp curry powder
1 tsp grated lime zest
1 Tb fresh lime juice
1/4 tsp ground cayenne pepper
To make curry paste, stir together ingredients (minus 1/2 Tb oil). Smear all but about 2 Tb of the paste over the chicken breasts. Refrigerate at least 30 minutes or for up to 2 hours. Add remaining 1/2 Tb of oil to the reserved 2 Tb curry paste and brush some onto apple slices. Grill the chicken over medium to med-high heat for about 20 minutes; basting with reserved paste and turning occasionally until juices run clear. A few minutes before chicken is done, grill apple slices turning once, until softened and grill marks appear, 1-2 minutes per side. Serve chicken garnished with a dollop of chutney and apple slices. Yum!
