Smoked paprika is the secret ingredient for instant smoky flavor – without setting up a smoker on your grill.

Ingredients

extra virgin olive oil

2 Tbsp

kosher salt

1¼ tsp, divided

paprika

1¼ tsp, smoked variety, divided

uncooked boneless skinless chicken breast

1 pound(s), thin cutlets recommended

cherries

¾ cup(s), pitted (or defrosted unsweetened frozen cherries)

apple cider vinegar

1 Tbsp

molasses

1 Tbsp

Dijon Mustard

1 Tbsp

chives

2 Tbsp, minced

Instructions

  1. Stir together oil, 1 tsp salt and 1 tsp paprika in a small bowl; rub evenly over chicken and set aside.
  2. Place cherries, vinegar, molasses, mustard and remaining 1/4 tsp each smoked paprika and salt in a blender; blend until smooth and set aside.
  3. Make sure your grill grate are super clean. Preheat a gas or charcoal grill to medium-high heat (or set a large grill pan over two burners or broil).
