Grilled Chicken Breasts with Grapefruit Glaze

Printed from Jenn's Food Journey, adapted from Food and Wine
- Serves 2 -

1/2 cup freshly squeezed grapefruit juice
1 teaspoon grapefruit zest
1/2 Tablespoon olive oil
2 Tablespoon honey
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
For the sauce -
3 Tablespoons mayonnaise
1 Tablespoon grapefruit juice
1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper

In a bowl or measuring cup, mix together the 1/2 cup grapefruit juice, zest, olive oil, honey, salt, pepper, and red pepper flakes until well combined. Remove half of the mixture, cover and place in refrigerator until about 30minutes before you are ready to grill the chicken. At that point, allow to sit at room temperature until ready to glaze chicken with. Place the chicken in a resealable bag and pour the remaining grapefruit mixture over the chicken. Seal the bag and place in refrigerator for 1-2 hours.

To make the sauce: Mix all the sauce ingredients together in a small bowl until well combined. Cover and place in refrigerator until ready to use.

Preheat the grill to 375 degrees F. Clean and oil grill grates. Remove chicken from the bag and discard the marinade. Place chicken over direct heat, brushing frequently with the reserved glaze, for 8 minutes. Turn the chicken and brush frequently with the glaze for another 8-10 minutes or until the chicken has reached an internal temperature of 165 degrees F. Remove from grill and allow to cool for 5 minutes. Serve with sauce and enjoy!
