Resolve To Renew With The Fresh Taste Of Grapefruit
(NAPSA) - Rediscover the other citrus-the refreshingly healthy grapefruit. A well-balanced diet should embrace variety and incorporate an assortment of healthier food items such as grapefruit.
Sweet, juicy and fresh grapefruit invigorates your taste buds while offering all the health benefits one is looking for. Naturally loaded with the antioxidant vitamin C, grapefruit juice helps boost the immune system during these winter months when colds and flu are at their peak. Lycopene, a powerful antioxidant in pink and red grapefruit juice, may help prevent certain types of cancer, heart disease and stroke.
Setting a goal to add more grapefruit into the diet can be a delicious and easy way to treat your body right from the inside out.
- 2/3 cup Ocean Spray(r) Ruby(tm) Grapefruit Juice Drink
- 1/4 cup butter
- 1/3 cup brown sugar
- 2 tablespoons honey
- 1 1/2 teaspoons red pepper flakes
- 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
Combine grapefruit juice drink, butter, brown sugar, honey and red pepper flakes in a medium saucepan. Cook over medium heat, stirring until smooth, 4-6 minutes. Set aside to cool 10 minutes.
Arrange chicken breasts in an 11x7x1 1/2-inch baking pan. Pour 2/3 cup marinade over chicken just to cover, reserving 1/2 cup. Cover pan with plastic wrap. Refrigerate and marinate for 30 minutes. Remove and turn chicken over, allow to marinate another 30 minutes. Divide remaining 1/2 cup marinade in half again; 1/4 cup will be used for basting and 1/4 cup will be used for serving.
Preheat grill. Grill chicken for approximately 4 minutes on each side, basting once or twice per side. Cook until chicken reaches 170 F on an instant-read thermometer. Warm remaining 1/4 cup marinade, drizzle over chicken.
