The family will love the extra fresh flavor of this grilled chicken.


4 garlic cloves, minced
1 cup apricot preserves
1/4 cup fresh lime juice
4 teaspoons less-sodium soy sauce
4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts (about 1-1/2 pounds)
2 tablespoons packed Sunny Select Light Brown Sugar
2 tablespoons pineapple juice
1 teaspoon Sunny Select Apple Cider Vinegar
1/4 teaspoon ground allspice
1 cup diced nectarines
1 cup diced plums
1/2 cup pitted and chopped sweet cherries
Chopped fresh cilantro leaves for garnish (optional)


Prep: 20 minutes plus marinating  
Grill: 20 minutes • Serves: 4

1. In small bowl, whisk together garlic, preserves, lime juice and soy sauce. Set aside 1/2 cup apricot mixture. Place chicken in large zip-top plastic bag; pour remaining apricot mixture over chicken. Seal bag; refrigerate 1 to 2 hours to marinate.


2. In medium bowl, mix brown sugar, pineapple juice, vinegar and allspice. Add nectarines, plums and cherries; toss to combine. Cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.


3. Prepare outdoor grill for direct grilling over medium heat. Remove chicken from marinade; discard marinade. Place chicken on hot grill rack and cook 18 to 20 minutes or until chicken loses its pink color throughout and internal temperature reaches 165°, brushing chicken occasionally with reserved apricot mixture and turning once halfway through cooking. To serve, spoon fruit mixture over chicken and sprinkle with cilantro, if desired.
