  • 1/2 cup thick and chunky salsa with fruit
  • 1/2 cup all-fruit preserves peach, apricot, blackberry, etc.
  • 1/4 cup EVOO
  • 1 lb boneless chicken breasts soaked in a brining solution
  • sea salt and pepper to taste


  • Brine meat using the instructions here.  I brine the meat for about two hours.  
  • Rinse chicken breasts in cool water and pat dry with paper towels.  
  • Coat chicken with olive oil and season with salt and pepper;  Set aside.
  • Whisk salsa and preserves together in a small bowl.  
  • Cook chicken on a preheated grill, on medium-high heat, until internal temperature reaches 160 degrees F, basting with salsa mixture about half way through cooking.
  • Right before the chicken is finished grilling (internal temperature of 163 F), coat with a thick layer of salsa glaze and do not flip again before removing from the grill.
  • Tent chicken with foil and allow to rest for 5 minutes to finish cooking and allow juices to soak back into the meat.
