We are big chicken eaters around here. We have yet to get bored of it. It's because you can do so many different things with it! I am constantly on the look out for different ways to make chicken.
This was a super simple grilled chicken with a simple glaze. It was delicious. I do like things sweet too so I thought this was awesome. I did use a sugar free peach jam which tastes great. Tonight we had bone in breasts but of course this would be fine with boneless chicken or pork too.
We ate this with a superb Quinoa with Sundried Tomatoes and Corn. It was seriously awesome.

Grilled Chicken with Ginger Peach Glaze
2 tbsp. red wine vinegar
2 tbsp. splenda (or sugar)
2 tsp. minced ginger (I use it from a jar)
2 cloves of garlic, minced or pressed
1/2 cup peach jam or preserves (I used Smuckers Sugar Free)
1 tbsp. soy sauce
Salt and pepper
1 1/2 lbs. chicken breasts (I used 3 bone in breasts)
In a small saucepan, heat the vinegar and sugar over medium heat until the mixture boils and the sugar dissolves. Add the ginger and garlic and cook for another minute. Add the peach jam, whisk the mixture together and bring to a boil. Remove from heat. Add the soy sauce and season with salt and pepper.
Sprinkle chicken with salt and pepper, grill the chicken until almost done, about 6 - 8 minutes per side, brush with ginger peach glaze and continue cooking until done.
