  • Prep time
  • Total Time
This recipe makes 4 Servings
  • 4 four-ounce fillets skinless chicken breast
  • 4 small apricots, diced into ½ inch chunks
  • kosher salt, to taste
  • black pepper, to taste
  • 1 teaspoon agave nectar
  • 1 teaspoon light brown sugar
  • ½ cup unsweetened applesauce

Preheat grill.

Mist chicken breasts with olive oil spray, and season with salt and pepper. Set aside.

Place apricots on sheet of foil paper, and sprinkle with applesauce, light brown sugar, and agave nectar on top. Fold foil paper to create a pouch. Place pouch on hot grill.

Place chicken breast cutlets on the grill.  Cook for about 5-8 minutes on each side, until you see nice grill marks on each side and the chicken breast is cooked all the way through.

After the chicken reaches an internal temp of 165 F, remove from grill, along with the apricot topping.

Divide apricot topping evenly among the grilled chicken pieces and enjoy!
