GRILLED APPLE CHICKEN
Serves 8

8 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
12 oz. container frozen apple juice concentrate, thawed (about 3/4 cup)
1/3 cup honey
2 TBLS lemon juice
1/4 cup brown sugar
2 tsps ground cinnamon
3 large Granny Smith apples, cored and cut into thick rings

Preheat grill to medium (if using gas grill), or until charcoal is covered with gray ash and is medium-hot.

In a small saucepan, combine apple juice concentrate, honey, lemon juice, brown sugar and cinnamon; mix well. Heat over medium heat until sugar is dissolved (about 3 minutes). Set aside 1 cup of mixture to serve as sauce; use remaining for basting. Arrange apple rings on grill and brush with basting sauce. Grill for 8 minutes, basting often. Turn apple rings over, baste again and grill for 8 to 10 minutes or until tender, basting often. Meanwhile, place chicken on grill. Brush with basting sauce. Grill for 5 minutes (10 minutes if frozen), basting often. Turn chicken over and baste again. Basting often, grill for 5 to 7 minutes more (10 to 15 minutes if frozen) or until internal juices run clear. Discard leftover basting sauce.

Serve chicken and apples with reserved sauce.
