Salty, yet sweet and tangy, the marinade for this dish hits all the right notes for summer.

Ingredients

fresh lime juice

6 Tbsp

ginger root

3 Tbsp, fresh, minced

apricot preserves

6 Tbsp

uncooked boneless skinless chicken breast(s)

1 pound(s), four 4 oz pieces

soy sauce

6 Tbsp

uncooked sweet potato(es)

2 small, scrubbed and sliced into 1/4-inch-thick rounds

Instructions

  1. Preheat grill.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together lime juice, ginger, preserves and soy sauce. Set aside 1/2 of the marinade. Add chicken to remaining marinade, cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour and up to 24 hours, turning chicken occasionally.
  3. Grill sweet potato slices until tender, about 8 minutes, brushing with reserved marinade as they cook. At the same time, grill chicken until firm and cooked through, about 4 to 5 minutes per side. Yields 1 chicken breast and about 1 cup of sweet potatoes per serving.
