We grill a lot in the summer. I love the taste of meat, veggies and fruit on the grill, it gets David to cook and not me, it helps keep the house cooler. A few days ago we had spicy honey-glazed chicken breasts that turned out pretty well.

Here’s the recipe for the chicken from Rachael Ray.

Spicy Honey-Glazed Chicken
Ingredients:
  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 2 teaspoons hot pepper sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 8 skinless, boneless chicken breasts (about 4 pounds)
  • Salt

Directions:

  1. In a small saucepan, heat 1 tablespoon olive oil over medium heat. Add the onion and garlic and cook, stirring, until translucent and beginning to brown, 6 to 8 minutes. Add the honey, hot pepper sauce and chili powder and simmer for 1 minute. Remove from the heat, stir in the lemon juice and set aside.
  2. Preheat a grill to medium-high. Rub the chicken with the remaining 3 tablespoons olive oil and season with salt. Grill until well marked, about 7 minutes. Flip and cook until the bottoms are well marked and the chicken is cooked through, another 2 minutes. Transfer to a plate and brush with the reserved honey glaze. Cover with foil and let rest for 5 minutes.

We served it with grilled pineapple and corn on the cob. Well, in the picture the corn’s cut off the cob, because that’s how I like it. David and Amber eat it on the cob like normal people.
