|Grilled Apple Chicken
12 oz. container frozen apple juice concentrate, thawed (about 3/4 cup)
1/3 cup honey
2 TBS lemon juice
1/4 cup brown sugar
2 tsp ground cinnamon
3 large Granny Smith apples, cored and cut into thick rings
8 chicken breast halves
salt, pepper and thyme
Preheat grill. In a small saucepan, combine apple juice concentrate, honey, lemon juice, brown sugar and cinnamon; mix well. Heat over medium heat until sugar is dissolved (about 3 minutes). Set aside 1 cup of mixture to serve as sauce; use remaining for basting.
Arrange apple rings on grill and brush with basting sauce. Grill for 8 minutes, basting often. Turn apple rings over, baste again and grill for 8 to 10 minutes or until tender, basting often.
Meanwhile, season the chicken and place on grill. Brush with basting sauce. Grill for 5 minutes, basting often. Turn chicken over and baste again. Basting often, grill for 5 to 7 minutes more (10 to 15 minutes if frozen) or until internal juices run clear. Discard leftover basting sauce. Serve chicken and apples with reserved sauce.
