This grilled chicken dish is simple but flavorful, and quick to prepare. The Jalapeno Salsa would also be wonderful on grilled or blackened fish.
For the grilled chicken:
6 boneless, skinless organic chicken breasts
1 cup teriyaki sauce
1/2 cup pineapple juice
1/4 cup orange juice concentrate, thawed
1/2 cup sucanat (can substitute brown sugar, sucanat is a natural sweetener made from dried cane juice)
1/2 cup vinegar
1 tsp garlic powder
1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
1/2 cup Good Seasons Italian Dressing prepared with olive oil (or Newman’s Own bottled Italian Dressing)
Mix last 8 ingredients in a saucepan and bring to a boil over medium-high heat, stirring with a whisk. Once mixture has boiled, turn off heat and allow to cool. Pour mixture over chicken breasts in a covered bowl and marinate overnight in the refrigerator.

3 tbsp fresh cilantro, chopped
3 tbsp fresh lime juice
2 small jalepenos, seeded and minced
1 tbsp grapeseed oil
