Grilled Sweet and Spicy Chicken Recipe

Love grilled chicken but tired of the same old, same old barbecue flavor? If so, you're going to enjoy this 6 ingredient grilled chicken recipe! You'll want to prepare the marinade ahead of time and refrigerate the chicken into it for at least 4 hours to allow the flavors to infuse. I typically prepare it around lunchtime and then everything is ready to go for dinner.

Grilled Sweet and Spicy Chicken Recipe

3 tablespoons apricot jam
1 tablespoon Nielsen-Massey Pure Lemon Extract
1/2 tablespoon Nielsen-Massey Pure Orange Extract
1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 pound chicken breasts

To make the marinade whisk together the apricot jam, orange and lemon extracts, red pepper flakes and salt. Whisk until combined.

We used sliced, skinless, chicken breasts. We poured the marinade into a large sized zipper freezer bag and then tossed in our chicken. Zipper it shut, shake it around and place in the refrigerator for 3-4 hours to marinate.

Warm your grill up to its highest setting, or light the charcoal and get the grill ready.

Place the chicken on the grill and allow to cook for 7-9 minutes, then flip and cook for another 5-7 minutes or until done. Remove and transfer to a plate. Serve immediately.

never thought about using so much extract in a recipe. I would like to try it to see if I would enjoy the taste. I do usually enjoy the combination of sweet and spicy.
