Simply prepared yet special, these chicken breasts are grilled and basted with a bitter, tart, and sweet glaze.

How to Make It

Step 1

Light the grill. In a small bowl, combine the garlic, grapefruit zest, grapefruit juice, oil, honey, salt, and pepper.

Step 2

Grill the chicken breasts over moderately high heat, brushing frequently with the glaze, for 8 minutes. Turn and cook, brushing with more glaze, until the chicken is just done, 10 to 12 minutes longer. Remove.

Step 3

In a small stainless-steel saucepan, bring the remaining glaze to a boil. Boil for about 1 minute, remove from the heat, and pour over the grilled chicken.

Step 4

Menu Suggestions: Since the chicken breasts don't have a lot of sauce, serve a juicy vegetable such as grilled or sautéed summer squash or zucchini alongside.

Step 5

Variation: Grilled Chicken Breasts with Citrus Glaze: Use a combination of citrus juices, such as orange, lemon, or lime, instead of all or part of the grapefruit juice.

Step 6

Wine Recommendation: The crisp acidity, effervescence, and moderate alcohol level of a brut Champagne from France or a sparkling wine from California will be perfect with the smokey taste here and with the high acidity of the grapefruit juice.
