Get juicy, deliciously grilled chicken breasts by marinating the chicken in a mixture of orange juice, preserves, oil, garlic, salt and pepper. We also added the peaches to the marinade for additional flavor. This recipe is downright delectable when peaches are in season. Identify perfectly ripened peaches by their fragrance and a skin that "gives" slightly to pressure. Serve these chicken-and-peach roll ups with mixed salad greens or coleslaw.

Ingredients

Unsweetened orange juice

¾ cup(s)

Apricot preserves

2 Tbsp

Olive oil

1 tsp

Garlic clove(s)

1 medium clove(s), minced

Table salt

tsp

Black pepper

tsp, freshly ground

Uncooked boneless skinless chicken breast(s)

½ pound(s)

Peach(es)

2 medium, sliced

White pita(s)

4 oz, four 1 oz pitas

Instructions

  1. In a shallow bowl, mix the orange juice, preserves, oil, garlic, salt and pepper; set aside 1/4 cup of the marinade for basting. Add the chicken and peaches; refrigerate, covered at least 1 hour.
  2. Preheat the broiler; spray rack with nonstick cooking spray. Transfer the chicken and peaches to the rack. Broil 6 inches from heat until cooked through and peaches begin to brown, basting with reserved marinade, 7-8 minutes on each side. Cool slightly; cut chicken into slices. Spoon chicken and peaches down the center of each pita; fold into bi-fold rolls.
