Grilled Chicken with Cherry Apple Chutney

Brining is the secret to marvelously tender and delicious chicken pieces. Grill them up and serve with a sweet and tangy chutney made from cherries and tart apples.

Recipe Ingredients:

Chicken:
1/4 cup Splenda® Sugar Blend
1/2 cup kosher salt
1 cup hot tap water
3 cups cold water
1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1 pound boneless, skinless chicken thighs
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 tablespoon canola oil

Cherry Apple Chutney:
1 cup pitted tart cherries (thawed, if frozen)
1/2 Granny Smith apple, unpeeled, cored, and chopped
1/2 cup finely chopped red onions
1/4 cup Splenda® Brown Sugar Blend
1/4 cup dried cherries
1 tablespoon brewed strong coffee
1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
1 grated peel of 1/2 lemon
1/3 teaspoon ground cayenne pepper
1 1/2 tablespoons apple juice concentrate
1 tablespoon chopped fresh mint

Cooking Directions:

1 – For Chicken: Combine Splenda® Sugar Blend, salt, and hot water in 1-gallon zipper-lock plastic bag and shake to dissolve Splenda® Sugar Blend and salt. Add cold water and chicken. Press air out of bag, seal, and refrigerate 1 1/2 to 2 hours.
2 – For Cherry Apple Chutney: In medium steel saucepan, combine tart cherries, apples, onions, Splenda® Brown Sugar Blend, dried cherries, coffee, vinegar, lemon peel, and cayenne.

Remove from heat and stir in juice concentrate and mint. Set aside.
3 – Remove chicken from brine and discard brine. Refrigerate chicken until ready to serve (up to 1 day). Pat chicken dry with paper towels and sprinkle all over with pepper. Let rest at room temperature 20 minutes.
4 – Heat grill to medium-high. Brush grill grate and coat with oil.
5 – Put chicken on grill, cover, and cook 5 to 7 minutes per side, or until chicken is no longer pink and juices run clear (about 170°F / 80°C on an instant-read thermometer). Brush with oil during last 5 minutes. Serve with chutney.
