élan's Calypso Pepper Jam Glazed Grill Chicken
3 chicken breast
salt fresh cracked black pepper
1/2 cup calypso pepper jam
2 tablespoons orange juice
3-4 table spoons pineapple juice
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
Remove any excess fat from the chicken breast and rinse with the juice of 1/2 a lime or lemon and water. Then sprinkle with a little salt and fresh ground black pepper.
THE GLAZE.. put the pepper jam, pineapple juice, dash of salt / pepper, mustard and orange juice and heat on low to medium heat in a saucepan. Using a whisk, blend everything together as it comes to a simmer and allow to thicken (less than 5 minutes). Place this in your metal bbq sauce pan with brush.
Grill your chicken as you would normally do, but don’t start glazing until the last 5 minutes of cooking. If you put the glaze on too early, it will burn before the chicken is fully cooked because of the natural sugars in the glaze.
Heat gas grill at high and reduce to medium heat, about 300 degrees F, when ready to grill.
Cook the chicken (depending on thickness for about 20 minuets or so). During the grilling process flip the chicken a couple times and turn them on the angle to get the lovely grill marks.
Turn the heat down on the BBQ and brush the glaze on to the almost cooked chicken breast a few times. Remember to keep flipping the chicken over a few times for the overall great taste and look.
ENJOY and this Caribbean flavoured glaze will also be great for pork.
