2 med Unpeeled Red Apples (Gala work well) Finely Chopped
2 T Red Onion Finely Chopped
1/4 C Fresh Cilantro Snipped
1 med Jalapeno (Remove Seeds and Membrane) Finely Chopped
1/2 t Orange Zest
1 T Fresh Orange Juice (optional)
1 T Fresh Lemon Juice
1/3 C Barbeque Sauce (Home made is always best)
3 T Honey
1/2 t Ground Cumin
4 Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts
Preheat your broiler and spray broiler pan with non-stick cooking spray
In a medium bowl, combine all of your Apple Salsa ingredients and set aside.
In a small bowl combine your glaze ingredients.
Broil the chicken (naked) about 4" from the heat for 3 minutes on each side. Once that is complete, baste one side of each breast and continue to broil for 6 additional minutes, turning the meat approximately every two minutes, basting each time you turn them. Cook until the chicken is no longer pink in the center and the glaze begins to brown.
Serve each breast with a 1/2 cup of Apple Salsa on a plate and enjoy. Pick up one of the great salads posted here and you have a perfect summer meal.
You can replace the honey with Agave Nectar and reduce your risk of a sugar spike. Even better if you have a home made barbeque sauce that you trust to be diabetic friendly.
