4 servings (serving size: 1 chicken breast half and about 2 1/2 tablespoons chutney)
1 1/2 teaspoons olive oil
1/4 cup chopped shallots
1 teaspoon minced seeded serrano chile
1/4 teaspoon minced peeled fresh ginger
1 garlic clove, minced
1 cup coarsely chopped seeded tomato
2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
1 tablespoon sugar
1 teaspoon mustard seeds
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons olive oil

1/2 teaspoon curry powder
1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
4 (6-ounce) skinless, boneless chicken breast halves

How to Make It
To prepare chutney, heat 1 1/2 teaspoons oil in a small saucepan over medium heat. Add shallots and serrano; cook 2 minutes, stirring frequently. Add ginger and garlic; cook 30 seconds, stirring frequently. Add tomato, vinegar, sugar, mustard seeds, and 1/2 teaspoon salt; bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer 10 minutes. Uncover and simmer 5 minutes or until mixture is thick. Set aside, and keep warm.
To prepare chicken, heat 2 teaspoons oil in a small saucepan over medium heat. Add coriander, curry, cumin, and black pepper; cook 1 minute, stirring frequently. Brush mixture evenly on both sides of chicken; sprinkle evenly with 1/2 teaspoon salt.
Place chicken on grill rack coated with cooking spray; grill 4 minutes on each side or until chicken is done. Serve chutney over chicken.
This is a very tasty and easy to make meal. I have made it several times, but I think next time I'll reduce the sugar to 3/4 T. It was just a little too much. I didn't have the serrano pepper this most recent time, but I still liked the dish.
Also, no grill at home, so I cooked the chicken on the stovetop. Very tasty & can't wait to eat the leftovers tonight!
This just might be my new CL favorite! Flavorful without being spicy... every bite a pleasure. I made according to the recipe, but doubled the chutney as recommended by others. As it was, every bite got eaten. Also grilled the chicken in the George Foreman, as suggested-- worked out really well. Enough effort to make you feel like you've accomplished something, but really fairly quick and easy. I'm already thinking of guests who will enjoy it!
