Submitted By: Marie Delffs


  • 3/4 cup onion, finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup grapefruit juice
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons rubbed sage
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons dried thyme
  • 1 teaspoon ground allspice
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 6 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves
  • Instructions

    In a large resealable plastic bag or shallow glass container, combine the first 15
    ingredients; mix well. Reserve 1/3 cup for basting and refrigerate. Add chicken to remaining marinade and turn to coat. Seal bag or cover container; refrigerate overnight.
    Drain and discard marinade. Grill chicken, uncovered, over medium coals for three minutes on each side. Baste with reserved marinade. Continue grilling for six to eight minutes or until juices run clear, basting and turning chicken several times.
    Note: This chicken is at the top of the list of foods I prepare for company. It’s easy to fix and never fails.
